I think our best bet is to check out further what ClarkConnect is doing.


I've tried that but got a reply: this mailbox doesn't exists'

This has to be rewritten if you want to use classpathx
javamail API instead of Sun's javamail API.


I will look into that then..

Just finishing up on a first version of e-smith-tomcat5, next is e-smith-rh-postgresql
(you know, some basic templating and all) and perl-DBD-pg,
then I'll get into manipulation of the open-xchange source for use in e-smith-open-xchange..
I noticed many java rpms from the centos 3.5 mirrors are classpath(x) based, so I assume there is a way to get it up and running...

Offcourse this will all take a while, I'll see about correcting some bugs mentioned earlier in between..

You might want to rename them smeserver-xxx, that has been the suggestion on the devel list for other community contributed packages (eg, smeserver-yum).

If you need some help/have questions post to the smeserver-devel mailing list.

Right, so I subscribed, started looking at the archive...and noticed the ldap in alpha19 is already aci-enabled...
I was still installing them every time... :hammer:
I'll be quiet and do some more reading now...

What e-mail address did you use?  Regardless, I uploaded the spec files and all the related scripts & configs that we used to build the OpenXchange beta.        Grab the ox-specs.tar.gz file in http://download1.clarkconnect.com/3.0/other/

Warning: the tarzip unpacks into a bunch of openxchange-xyz directories... not ox-specs.  The following directories are probably of most interest:

- openxchange-openldap: the sandboxed LDAP build
- openxchange-postgresql: the sandboxed Postgres build
- openxchange: OpenXhange and our setup scripts

Just in case someone reads this post a few weeks from now... when the final version is released, the source RPMs will be found in the usual spot: http://download1.clarkconnect.com/3.1/sources/

Peter, thanks for sharing your work in progress!  You guys must have done a bit of research on what is distributable and what isn't as far as Sun/IBM Java is concerned - it is confusing to say the least.  Looks like you've got it all legal though.  I wasn't sure about the jaf and javamail packages but after re-reading the 'Sun Binary Code Licence' for those, it seems ok.

Yes, it seems Charlie is taking notice of your project - Did you post your src rpm's somewhere yet?

I'm afraid I'm getting a bit lost on what is and isn't allowed with java.

Greg, maybe you can explain what you've found out so far?

I have been working on the gnu JVM, and have made some progress, but it's not getting anywhere fast..

Better news, I have a first version of both smesmerver-tomcat5 and smeserver-rh-postgresql working, and I have been able to use perl-DBD-pg to connect with postgres.

This means I can deprecate the extra userrights property in the accounts db, eliminating redudant data,
and perhaps provide more functionality in the panel, since I am now able to retrieve data from postgres.

I think we should follow ClarkConnects example by using the IBM JRE.  Sun's Javamail and Jaf packages are OK to distribute, I had thought they weren't.

The licensing issues were confusing.  Basically, you can distribute many of the Java libraries from Sun and IBM as long as you do not modify anything.  This was to protect against Microsoft-like shenanigans with "enhancing and extending" Java ... thereby introducing incompatibilities.  

Sun also requires that other JVMs (IBM, Kaffe) cannot be provided alongside its own JVM -- that's a bit rude but within their rights.  The licensing bothers the open source purists (Debian, and Red Hat to a certain extent), and that's within their rights too!

Well, the IBM JRE (JVM) is the way go then.

I'll try to create a modified tomcat package, including the smeserver config I had created as a separate package,
and try to maintain as much functionality as possible.

The available tomcat rpms need packages which have been integrated with the Java JVM, so that's just not going to work as is.

edit) No, nevermind, it's working just fine with original packages.. I was doing it all wrong

I guess the licensing makes sense, and I wouldn't be bothered by it, if they would just say it as it is. I guess that would be (nearly) impossible when covering most legal loopholes? Anyway, so be it.

Thanks for the info, pcbaldwin, greg
