    Retrotranslator tryout

    Scott Stark Master

      So the Retrotranslator(http://retrotranslator.sourceforge.net) seems decent and is more complete than our retro weave effort so I would like to try it out on the jbossws-1.0 effort to validate a jdk14 compatible translation of this stack can pass all of the jboss4.0.x webservice tests.

      I have validated that the Retrotranslator can translate the current jdk5 compiled code by updating the compile-classes15 target:

       <target name="compile-classes15" depends="init" if="HAVE_JDK_1.5">
       <mkdir dir="${build.classes}"/>
       <javac destdir="${build.classes}"
       optimize="${javac.optimize}"
       target="1.5"
       source="1.5"
       debug="${javac.debug}"
       depend="${javac.depend}"
       verbose="${javac.verbose}"
       deprecation="${javac.deprecation}"
       includeAntRuntime="${javac.include.ant.runtime}"
       includeJavaRuntime="${javac.include.java.runtime}"
       failonerror="${javac.fail.onerror}">
       <src path="${source.java}"/>
       <classpath refid="javac.classpath"/>
       </javac>
      
       <!-- The default location is in this directory -->
       <property name="retrotranslator.dist" value="/cvs/JBossHead/jbossretro/Retrotranslator-0.9.5-bin" />
       <property name="jdk14.home" value="/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_09" />
       <path id="tests.classpath">
       <fileset dir="${retrotranslator.dist}">
       <include name="retrotranslator-runtime.jar" />
       <include name="retrotranslator-transformer.jar" />
       </fileset>
       </path>
       <taskdef name="retro"
       classname="net.sf.retrotranslator.transformer.RetrotranslatorTask"
       classpathref="tests.classpath" />
      
       <mkdir dir="output/classes14" />
       <retro destdir="output/classes14"
       verify="true"
       failonwarning="true">
       <!-- Apparently needs the 14 rt.jar -->
       <classpath location="${jdk14.home}/jre/lib/rt.jar" />
       <classpath refid="tests.classpath" />
       <classpath refid="javac.classpath" />
       <src path="output/classes" />
       </retro>
      
       </target>
      


      The Retrotranslator-0.9.5 jars have since been added to the binary repository under retrotranslator/0.9.5.

      Some additional work is needed to refactor some of the external dependencies on the server, etc module classes I would imagine. Can we work towards getting a jdk14 packaging of the webservices jars/sar into the repository for testing against jboss4.0.x?
