Creating a Distribution of ActiveMQ-CPP
This should give you an idea of the steps involved with creating a new distribution of ActiveMQ-CPP. This content was extracted from http://www.apache.org/dev/mirror-guide-bodewig.html, so you may want to reference that for more information.
A Little Background Info ...
Apache mirrors everything under /www.www.apache.org/dist. We have had the infrastructure team add a directory under there for activemq. All you need in order to write to this directory is to be a member of the activemq group. If you're not, you'll have to create an infrastructure issue to get yourself added. Under the dir activemq, there is a directory activemq-cpp/source for the source distributions of ActiveMQ-CPP.
Under the source dir, we just drop the archive files (*.zip, *.tar.gz, *.zip.asc, *.tar.gz.asc) for the release versions. (NOTE: After you add files here, you should wait about 24 hours before notifying the lists since it takes a while for all the mirrors to pick up the files).
The links on our download pages reference an apache CGI script to handle the mirrors. This is a quick and dirty way of doing this, but it works until we come up with a better way. An example usage of the link is the url below:
The cgi script "closer.cgi" takes a file resource relative to www/www.apache.org/dist and generates a download page for it with the list of mirrors.
To see this in action, go to the amq-cpp 1.1 download page here: http://activemq.apache.org/activemq-cpp-11-release.html
... and click on one of the archives. You'll be taken to a generic-looking download page.
Like I said, this is a quick and dirty for now, but it works!
Product version, interface version and package name
The page ActiveMQ-CPP product version number has been created to specify the way version numbers are used in the project, with some examples.
ActiveMQ-CPP, libtool and packaging notes discusses the way version numbers impact libtool and packaging, and make some recommendations for this project.
Creating a Distribution (step-by-step)
The Release is still in progress
You are previewing the release page for unreleased version of yadda. The download links on the page below may not work until it is officially released.
Until the release is approved you could try the current source bundle:
Here is the Wiki Test for the above:
