resolver.jar is a third party library being used in netbeans.
But it needs to be patched to cater to NetBeans needs.
There are three ways:
1) vote for a new API on commons-dev at xml.apache.org.
2) create forked package for patched resolver
3) request the original libxml-commons-resolver1.1-jaqva package to add
1) a letter on commons-dev at xml.apache.org was sent.
The answer was:
Since the 1.2 release there hasn't been any discussion on future
development or any changes made to the resolver codebase. There
currently are no plans for a 1.3. If one were happen it needs content
and volunteers to do the development and release managment.
Based on this, it seems to be not the fastest way.
2) I've created a forked resolver. It is on mentors.debian.net now. But
I'm afraid it can be rejected because of duplication of code.
3) this bug is a result
So is it possible to add my patch into existing package?
