Subject Re: Apache Portals portlet-spec dependencies in APA, Pluto and Jetspeed-2 about to be updated
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 02:01:03 GMT
As promised, I'm sending this follow up message to notify you all the release candidates for
the portlet-spec jars have been created.
And, I've updated the APA, Pluto and Jetspeed-2 trunks to now use the portlet-api_2.0_spec-1.0.jar.

Until the voting on these release candidates has been completed successfully, anyone willing
to build one of the APA, Pluto or Jetspeed-2 
projects from trunk will have to checkout and locally install the following projects first
(from the ASF svn tree):


Note: anyone already having build and deployed a portal using the previous 1.0-SNAPSHOT version
and/or earlier used portlet-api-2.0.jar, do 
make sure to delete such an old jar from your (Tomcat) shared/lib folder when building and
deploying again.

With kind regards,
