Re: Debian package of geronimo

Hello Paul,

Thanks for your reply. I thought this would be the situation. With no knowledge about how making packages for Debian I doubt that I could make this myself, but I filed a RFP at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=481869

Was just trying to get Geronimo running on a debian machine, but noticed that there was no ready made package to debian. Is there any particular

It would be really nice if there would be a ready made package so that directories and configs would be done in debian style. Is there someone with better knowledge about making debian packages than me that would be
interested in this? At least I find Geronimo as an interesting
environment to develop and run JavaEE applications and especially their
management console is very appealing compared to e.g. JBoss. At least
JBoss and Glassfish seem to already be in place, but is there room for
one more solution?

Hi Jonas,

As far as I can see, it doesn't look like anyone is actively packaging
Geronimo for Debian.

You can put in a request for it at http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/.
But my guess is that it isn't something that would get into Debian too
quickly. There are just too many packages, and not enough developers...
