#51386 closed enhancement (fixed)

Remove JRuby dependency on Kaffe

Reported by: mouse07410 (Mouse) Owned by: ci42
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc:
Port: jruby


My installation does not use Kaffe, but Oracle JDK. Your JRuby port appears to require kaffe. I don't want Kaffe because it would interfere with my other running stuff.

Therefore I'm asking for an option, a variant, whatever - of a JRuby port that would either discover JDK installation on its own, or accept variant name from the user and take on faith that the user chooses to install this variant only if/when he has Oracle JDK already installed.

Thank you!

Any updates?

The bigger issue seems to be that in the repository, jruby is extremely out of date. We've got 1.7.4 and the latest is 1.7.27 in the 1.x series and we don't even have in the 9K series. This port obviously has no maintainer.
