removing java package from SVN tree

Carnë Draug-2
Hi everyone

the java package as been moved to Octave core (see
http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/acf0addfc610). I want to
remove the package from the SVN tree to prevent accidental branching
of its development.

I will keep the tarball in the servers available for download and
install, even after the release of whatever Octave version includes
it.

Is it planned to integrate it at some point in a similar way as the java
support is integrated into Matlab?

Hmm.... surprise.

Apparently, exactly that has been done; Octave-Java-package's
idiosyncrasies permitting.

That is, Matlab ships with a JRE so that Java is always guaranteed to
work with ML. (The ML GUI was (still is?) Java-based so I can understand
why TMW needed to do that.)

AFAICS Octave is dependent on an independently installed JDK. Moreover,
once Octave has been built from source w/o JDK, adding in a JRE or JDK
later on and then expecting Java to work automagically from Octave may
be a tad optimistic.
Of course, for users invoking a binary distribution package this
shouldn't be a problem.

I'm curious whether anybody has tried Octave-Java on Mac OS X using an
Oracle JDK/JRE rather than what Apple provides to see if it also
produces the runtime threading error indicated by
http://lists.apple.com/archives/java-dev/2005/Mar/msg00506.html.

Right now that renders the Octave-Java package essentially nonfunctional
on OS X when using Apple's Java.

Only the GUI aspects of Java are unusable. But there's much more than that in Java.

The last time I tried I couldn't get the spreadsheet import tools to
work, either.
