README shipped with OpenDJ 4.0.0+ is misleading


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Done
    • Priority: Blocker
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 4.0.0
    • Fix Version/s: 4.0.0
    • Component/s: documentation
    • Labels:


      Steps to reproduce:

      1. download OpenDJ 4.0.0
      2. unzip it
      3. read the README in order to find out what to do next.

      Unfortunately the README is quite misleading for a couple of reasons:

      • it claims that OpenDJ is an open source project under the CDDL license which is not the case:
        OpenDJ - Open Source Directory Services in Java
        This archive contains OpenDJ, an open source, high performance, highly
        available, secure, directory server in Java.
        This product includes software available under the Common Development and
        Distribution License (CDDL).  The complete text for this license, and for
        alternate licenses of included components, may be found in the legal-notices
      • the instructions for using the "setup" tool are out of date. They refer to the GUI mode and the CLI mode. In particular, the CLI instructions don't work:
        $ ./setup --cli
        An error occurred while parsing the command-line arguments:  Argument --cli is
        not allowed for use with this program
        See "setup --help" to get more usage help
