Description Jaroslav Tulach 2014-07-14 10:10:47 UTC
JUnit library has been re-licensed under acceptable Eclipse Public License. There is no reason to mess with downloading it separately.

Special treatment of JUnit complicates the build process as well as installer. Remove it and treat JUnit as any other 3rd party library.

~a year ago

agree

AFAIK until there is an official release with the new license we cannot proceed with removing the "special treatment".

Duplicate issue was P2
Comment 4 Theofanis Oikonomou 2014-11-27 11:38:49 UTC
4.12-beta-3 was recently out so it looks this can be scheduled for next release
Comment 5 Jaroslav Tulach 2014-11-28 04:46:29 UTC
What do you mean by next release? 8.1? Isn't the right target "Dev" then?

Why do you care about JUnit 4.12-beta? The relicensing happened one and half year ago https://github.com/junit-team/junit/blob/master/epl-v10.html
and at least 4.11 has been stable release released since then?

correct, my mistake.

the library was relicensed 1.5 years ago but 4.11 was already released for half a year already. AFAIK there must be a final release (meaning 4.12) that contains the new license so that the legal process for approval can start. When this happens I will remove the extra steps needed for configuring junit support in netbeans.

One thing that would work on a lot of developer machines:

See if ~/.m2/junit/junit/4.11/junit-4.11.jar exists and if yes, use that.  I find it particularly silly that it tries to download it when another part of the IDE knows that it exists on disk.
Comment 8 Theofanis Oikonomou 2015-04-21 12:19:59 UTC
Should be fixed: http://hg.netbeans.org/web-main/rev/459035808e45
Comment 9 Theofanis Oikonomou 2015-05-28 11:00:53 UTC
Extra fix related to removing junit-3.x binaries and library definition : http://hg.netbeans.org/core-main/rev/b8ed12ff61bf
