Subject [jira] Commented: (QPID-2905) Fixes for mingw cross-compilation (C++)
Date Wed, 13 Oct 2010 11:34:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-2905?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12920503#action_12920503

Steve Huston commented on QPID-2905:

Overall the patch looks good. I have two concerns:

1. Importing code from LGPL... IANAL but this looks scary to me. Maybe run this by Apache
legal to be sure it's not opening up Qpid to license problems.

2. Is there a substantive long-term user that's going to maintain the MinGW stuff? My limited
exposure to open source projects and MinGW is that people are quick to jump up and say they
want a project to build on MinGW but are not willing to put up any resources to keep it up
to date over time.

>             Project: Qpid
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: C++ Broker, C++ Client, Code Generator
>    Affects Versions: 0.7
>            Reporter: Ted Ross

>         Attachments: cross2.diff
> In attempting to cross-compile the Qpid trunk in the MinGW environment, a number of build
errors were seen.  Attached to this issue is a patch that fixes the errors and builds cleanly
on Linux/gcc and MS Visual Studio as well.
> The classes of error discovered are:
> 1) Case-sensitivity of file names (i.e. Secure32.lib => secure32.lib)
> 2) Syntax issues where MSVC is too lenient (semicolon after the closing brace of a template
> 3) *_EXTERN on DLL APIs.  MinGW doesn't like externs on in-line functions, requires externs
on class names.
> 4) const_case<char*>() needed on LPTSTR arguments in the Windows API
> 5) Unused function arguments need to be commented out
> 6) the *_s variants of ::localtime, ::strncpy, ::strerror can't be used
> Before I commit, I would appreciate some review and feedback on this patch.
