OpenDS: pkg(5) Ant Integration Updated
By ckamps on Jul 23, 2009
Ludovic Poitou has graciously integrated some of my recent build enhancements into the OpenDS source tree. These changes were mainly oriented toward enabling developers to build the pkg(5)-enabled OpenDS download bundles while disconnected from the network. Use of the custom Ant tasks for pkg(5) developed by the Update Center 2 project is a key aspect of the overall OpenDS and pkg(5) integration.
- modifications to enable building of OpenDS pkg(5)-based image when your disconnected from the network
- updates to the package metadata to include OpenDS project links and up-to-date package descriptions
- streamlined developer set up steps
The updated developer experience is documented in Building OpenDS in pkg(5) Format Using the Update Center 2 Toolkit on the OpenDS project site.
This integration paves the way to build and publish both pkg(5)-enabled OpenDS download bundles and the associated packages such that OpenDS developers and users can start getting their feet wet with the benefits of this combination.
