Craig-

It'd be great if we could get the authoritative jars published there. I know it would ease headaches for a lot of maven projects that depend on those libraries (that currently require that the user perform the cumbersome download-and-install-the-sun-libraries step in order to build).

When talking to the engineer in charge, you might want to point them to http://maven.apache.org/guides/mini/guide-coping-with-sun- jars.html for recommended namings for the deployed jars.

For the record, https://maven-repository.dev.java.net/nonav/ repository/ is the repository that Glassfish development teams publish to. I've asked the responsible engineer at Sun about the plans for adding JTA, JCA, and JMS to this repository. I'll let everyone know when I get an answer.

We actually are using the same JPA jars that Glassfish is using (from a third repository I hadn't mentioned, at https://maven- repository.dev.java.net/repository/javax.persistence/jars/ ). It's the other jars (JTA, JCA, JMS) that, to my knowledge, do not have any other public Maven-friendly distribution available. My understanding is that Glassfish is currently storing their copies of the jars in CVS.

I hadn't noticed the Geronimo versions! They seem to contain
everything we need. Once I get SVN write access, I'll fix the
dependencies to use the Geronimo versions, and we can get rid
of the additional repository.

I think that the Glassfish license is sufficiently clear now, and I
believe that all the Java EE stuff is being maintained in a maven repo
somewhere by the Glassfish folks. Personally, I'd prefer to go this
route than to use the Geronimo versions, especially for the JPA jars,
which have non-trivial behavior in them.
