It is great to see much activity on the database; lot's fixes, features in trunk...... 1.5 promises to be great! Recently there have been some changes in lib/core and start.config; please note that this area is a bit sensitive.
For years we have tried to keep lib/core as small ass possible. The idea is that if one only needs the xmldb or xmlrpc driver, just a few jar files are needed. a few reasons:
- we are also able to keep the download size of the webstart-client as small as possible
- for e.g. the oxgygenxml editor just a few jars (xmldb.jar, exist.jar and the xmlrpc jars) are needed
basically, you extend the list of required jar files, the consequence is that at least these two subjects need to be investigated. An additional consequence for the webstart client is that other jar files need to get signed as well (and a list must be changed to include the new jar file as well)
SO if a new jar file is required for 'client/embeded/local' mode, please check and test this. If a developer doesn't test this, and the webstart client stopped to work, the developer basically introduced a (avoidable) regression issue. This will not make good friends.
