> Hi Jürgen, Cesar,
>>> Hi, I am Cesar Martinez Izquierdo, from the gvSIG development team.
>>> We are interested on including gvSIG on the OSGeo4W distribution.
>>> Is there any specific requirement to do so (in addition to prepare a
>>> packaging as described on [1])?
>> No, but I'm not sure of the state java and dependencies are in.   I think it
>> was introduced for udig and beegis, which were meanwhile removed.  java is
>> still there, but probably in a bad shape.
> I will jump in as previous uDig and java maintainer for some clarification.
> java is still there because I thought other projects would use it. But
> it is in great shape, i.e. works properly.
> The problem with java is that one xml library of it conflicts with
> some other package and it has been suggested in the past that java
> would therefore be installed as an application.
> I didn't do it, because at that time I was withdrawing the uDig
> packages anyways and though that the next maintainer of java would do
> that.
>> The gdal java bindings are currently unmaintained too and I'm not sure if
>> anyone uses the java mapscript bindings.
>> And that's all the java support there is.  I guess you have to also adopt java
>> if you want to add gvsig - preferable in a way that other stuff can also make
>> of it (eg. to bring back gdal-java).
> That is the problem and should be first discussed. I am not sure who
> makes use of java-gdal bindings in osgeo4w, but several have stated
> that a "general" java might give problems with other packages.
> It might be good to check who still depends on java and evaluate if it
> is better to insert java in the gvSIG installation.
> Cesar, if you are at the gvSIG conference next week, we can take a
> moment and I can help you to create the first gvSIG package and show
> you how it is done.
> Best regards,
> Andrea
