Java Special Interest Group

DukeWithHelmet.png


A SIG for people who are interested in improving the state of Java in Fedora. This includes packaging Java libraries and applications, setting and improving standards for packaging them as RPM's and collaboratively managing bigger changes related to Java in Fedora.

If you want to take the attention of the SIG members. Please open a bug report and make it block FE-JAVASIG

Meetings

There will be informal Java SIG meetings in the #fedora-meeting channel held irregularly.

For more information about the past and upcoming meetings please see the meetings subpage: Java/Meetings

IRC Channel

Besides the Java SIG meetings there is also existing a freenode channel for developers and users of java in Fedora: #fedora-java[?]

Mailing list

There's a mailing list here named java-devel which you can join to ask questions.

Ongoing projects

State of Affairs

There have been few big updates and changes to core Java packages in the past. Most notably update of Maven to version 2.2.1, rename of jakarta-commons packages to apache-commons (still underway) and most recently update of ant to 1.8.x. All of these changes were mostly organized through bugzilla and wiki pages. This worked out mostly OK, but this could be good place for all tasks related to Java so that everyone can quickly see what is going on.

Current state of Java packaging guidelines is not ideal. They are somewhat outdated and missing few things. See Tasks section for current state of this.

If you would like to help us with packaging Java software, read how to join Fedora packagers or get in touch with us directly and we will guide you through the process.

Guidelines for building Java packages can be found on a separate page.

See Java packaging common problems page for help with common problems while building java packages and how to solve them.

Tasks

Currently Open Java Package Review Bugs

We generally like to get new Java packages into Fedora as long as they follow our packaging guidelines. Currently there is no simple way to query bugzilla for Java-only package reviews so people interested in java reviews have it a bit harder. Just go through all open package reviews or Java package reviews. The second link can be incomplete, but should contain mosly Java packages.

Members

If you are interested in joining the SIG, please hang out at #fedora-java. If you have provenpackager or sponsor status, please tell us so we might use your help in critical situations :-)
