xtreemfs source archive contains some bundled sourceless binary .JAR files. GNU+Linux distributions like Debian discourage such practice and package all dependencies separately. During my examination of xtreemfs dependencies I found that OpenDMK 1.0-b02 can't be build from sources without sourceless "binary plug" which makes it non-free and therefore not suitable for re-distribution. Besides it looks like OpenDMK may be no longer maintained since its latest release in 2007.

If there are any OpenDMK alternatives available I'd suggest considering to replace OpenDMK with something free and up-to-date. Meanwhile is it possible to (re-)build xtreemfs from source without "jdmk*.jar" files?
Thanks.

The two .jar files are optional for the SNMP support.

We don't plan to do the separation on our own.

If you provide us patches for our RPM and DEB package specifications to separate the jar files into a separate package "xtreemfs-snmp", we can do that.

Please have a look at the related issue #173 . As very minimum it would make sense to document the origins of those JARs and perhaps to provide script(s) to download them rather than bundle to source archive. If necessary you can host dependency JARs together with other downloads.

Besides I couldn't figure out how to build XtreemFS from source without SNMP. Could you advise?

It is not possible to build XtreemFS from source without "jdmk*.jar" files. :(
