Bug Description

Binary package hint: tomcat6

tomcat6 6.0.28-7 was synced from Debian however it fails to build from source.

The reason is that ant-trax.jar is no longer provided by ant-optional:

ant (1.8.1-1) experimental; urgency=low
 .
   [ Niels Thykier ]
   * Replaced B-D on default-jdk-builddep with gcj-native-helper
     and default-jdk.
   * Bumped Standards-Versions to 3.9.0.
     - Reduced a Conflicts to a Breaks.
 .
   [ Torsten Werner ]
   * New upstream release
   * Update or remove our patches.
   * Do no longer install ant-stylebook.jar and ant-trax.jar because they are no
     longer built.
   * Remove Stefan from Uploaders list. Thanks to your contributions!

This can easily be fixed by depending on ant1.7-optional (which provide the required /usr/share/java/ant-trax.jar), but would introduce a delta with Debian, so I'll just check with Torsten that this is also the way to fix it in Debian.

Hey Torsten,

If you confirm that ant-optional (1.8) will never provide ant-trax.jar, I'll just commit a fix in debian-java SVN to make tomcat6 use ant1.7-optional instead.

Hmm, it still fails, since ant1.7-optional is in universe. We need to MIR or work around. Will be discussed at UDS.

ant1.7 was in main (in maverick) for a short time. The approved MIR for it was bug #614000. Perhaps you can reuse it to get ant1.7-optional back to main (till a final solution).

The xslt tasks which are failing under ant 1.8.1 require the TraXLiaison class from ant-nodeps.jar (part of ant-optional for tasks with no dependencies outside of the JDK/JRE). Adding this to DEB_JARS should resolve this issue.
