/usr/local/java/jboss5 fails to build

hi vermaden,

here is the howto and all needed changes...

installation is done on a 8.2-RELEASE-p6 FreeBSD amd64 with openjdk6

what is missing is a settings.xml which must be located in the home directory of root, or the one who is installing ports


file is attached in this file the depricated jboss dependencies are kept; otherwise you will not be able to build

second thing is i removed/changed things from the pom.xml file in the portbuild/usr/ports/java/jboss5/work/jboss-5.1.0.GA-src/

there are changes for 

the entries glassfish i have removed <url>http://maven.glassfish.org/content/groups/glassfish</url> they just deliver not working response

how to patch, i run "make install" in /usr/ports/java/jboss5
when jboss-src is downloaded and extracted i interrupted the build

patched the pom.xml   (problem was, i thougth install will work, but it was running and downloading garbage from glassfish repo...)
rm -rf /root/.m2/repository/ helps also if some garbage is collected

jboss-team has announced there will be a repo change already some time ago, but i also did not recognize it :-) until it was turned off...

for the portmaintainer ? how to handle the settings.xml ? the other things can be patched…

and settings.xml

br horst


Total time: 11 minutes 25 seconds

To run the jboss server from startup, add jboss5_enable="YES" in your /etc/rc.conf. Extra options can be found in the startup script.
===>   Registering installation for jboss-5.1.0.GA_1,1

;-) good luck
