Detailed Description

Java-gnome is a Gtk wrapper/implementation for Java Applications that allow to develop gtk applications using Java. To stay in sync with Upstream, we need to move to 4.x release.

Benefit to Fedora

Stay in sync with upstream with latest patches, features and add capabilities to Java-Gtk applications


Changes to do:

  • Build 4.x version packages as java-gnome
  • Move 2.x stack to compat-java-gnome
  • List packages with depends on the current version of stack (2.x)
  • Build packages against 4.x stack if it possible
  • Packages that not fit with 4.x must be marked to depends on compat-

How To Test


User Experience

  • More java-applications colud be included in Fedora
  • Some java-applications today included in Fedora can be updated to lastest releases, with new features



Contingency Plan

  • None: Packages that cannot be build against 4.x stack must be pointed to compat-java-gnome (current stack)
  • If something really goes to hell, remove java-gnome 4.x stack and back to current stack (2.x)
