Description Jaroslav Tulach 2004-06-19 09:14:29 UTC
According to the installation proposal
which describes the platform as a cluster we have
to slightly modify the content of the ZIP file we
build as part of build process (should be the
result of ant -f nbuild/build.xml build-platform)
and use this ZIP file when uploading platform
build on
Comment 1 Jaroslav Tulach 2004-06-19 09:20:41 UTC
The correct build with the right content (as described in
is currently build as part of 

ant -f nbbuild/build.xml zipclusters

I suggest to move the creation of the platform zip file to the
build-platform task and name the resulting zip file
netbeans-*-platform4-*.zip where the "*" should be choosen according
to the naming scheme introduced by 

With my current knowledge and imho the zip file should not contain the
root directory netbeans and all its files should be under platform4
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2004-06-20 17:30:10 UTC
Just don't build the ZIP as part of the normal IDE build or you will
slow down developer builds.
Comment 3 Jaroslav Tulach 2004-06-21 08:04:09 UTC
I was considering ant build-platform-nozip to just build the platform
and ant build-platform to build and zip it. This might solve Jesse's
last comment as well, if build-platform-nozip is used in case of when
one wants to whole ide.

Comment 7 Jaroslav Tulach 2005-01-04 06:41:52 UTC
Request: The name of the file should contain platform5 not just
platform as that is the most important information.

Request: The zip file should not contain netbeans/extra directory. 

Suggestion: Imho it would be better if the zip file contained files
without netbeans prefix. Just /platform5/....

Comment 10 rbalada 2005-01-26 10:35:30 UTC

it looks like we cannot agree what should be in the platform product.
I've attached layout files of each package type. 

We have following options:
- keep it as it is
- change platform product te equal to platform5 cluster package
- compromise solution, distribute both packages -> actual platform
.zip and newly platform5 cluster .zip packages
