currently we are lacking a fedora version of the bsf jython engine.
(I am in need of it for a ant script)
It looks to me as if rebuilding bsf with version 2.4.0 and including a
build requires on jython would be enough. I've testing compiling with
`CLASSPATH=$(build-classpath jython) ant compile` and that worked well.
(I do not think that subpackages would be any usefull at this point).
Any comments on that?
ps: cc-ing the current maintainer to speed things up a little.

That's the point. I always thought, /usr/share/java/* would be on the
default classpath. Is that not the case?
At least strace tells me that lots of jar files there are read. Setting
CLASSPATH=/usr/share/java/\* before invoking ant, does not work but dies
with a strange exception, using
CLASSPATH=/usr/share/java/ant-contrib.jar works, but what is the point
of doing that if I install a rpm file?
Also I noticed that lots of ant rpms put their files
So do I really have to manage my CLASSPATH manually?
after installing ant-contrib, I cannot use it.
in my build.xml
But as a result I do get a resource not found error.
How am I supposed to use this thing rpm?
>Backend Java, eh? Perhaps jboss.org would be a good place to start.
Okay. Being at start, I think I\'d like to contribute in all ways I
can using Java, C++ or shell script.
What are the possible areas now?
Actually I\'m a fresher and unaware of what areas I can work in. I\'m
really eager to start contributing to, my favourite place, open
Generally I like to work in backend. Please let me know what areas I
can work in.

Great! Welcome. In Fedora, we generally direct people wishing to
contribute to upstream communities. What areas are you interested
I\'m a software developer and want to contribute to projects on Java
Request to guide on what is required and how can I start contributing
thanks in advance,
