Clear Linux OS will be reducing its Java footprint

Clear Linux OS will be reducing its Java footprint to a size consistent with other rolling release distros. By the end of January of 2020, Clear Linux Project will only provide the following Java content:

  • OpenJDK in multiple versions, available both for developers as well as used by Clear itself to build a select number of packages
  • apache-ant, bazel, libreoffice, R-rstudio will continue to be included

All other Java packages will be removed, including the ones in the following bundles:

  • apache-flink
  • apache-tomcat
  • big-data-basic
  • cassandra
  • elasticsearch

We understand this may significantly impact some users. We appreciate your understanding while we go through this transition.

Thank you!

Clear Linux OS team

It would be helpful if you could provide the list of those packages.

And in future if anyone opened an issue to request those packages, we can refer them here.

Ah thanks for poking me about this. These are the packages that are going away (sorry for the long list).

How can I do if I want to install apache-maven?

I recommend following the upstream guide.

Thanks,

There will be no more apache-maven package?

Yes, that is correct.

Hello,
removing Apache Tomcat comes “just in time” when going to migrate my Apache Guacamole systems from other linux platforms to Clear (like already done with nginx proxies). Need (tiny) server to run .war files (like with Tomcat). I was previously used a tiny app. called winstone (from jenkins package), but it is deprecated looong time. What would you recommend? Apache Tomcat ran in Docker (hope not)? :wink:
Thank you in advance!
S.

Why not Docker? Gucamole has images for its various components already: https://guacamole.apache.org/doc/gug/guacamole-docker.html

Generally no problem with Docker… :wink:
But in this particular case just because:

  1. For a simple one-purpose appliance a little bit overkill
  2. Need to do customization of guacamole.war (so cannot just use prepared .war / docker image)
  3. Security (not experienced Docker user)

But the 3. I also take as a good reason to learn more… :wink:

But - back to my original question - another tiny Tomcat alternative?
