The Rome Fetcher aims to introduce the absolute minimum number of extra dependencies. Currently (30-June-2004) no extra dependencies over those required by Rome are required to use the fetcher.

The current dependencies required to use the Rome Fetcher are:

  • JDK 1.4+
  • Current version of Rome
  • JDom v 1.0

To build the Rome Fetcher the Jakarta HTTP Client is required.

If the HttpClientFeedFetcher (fetcher) fetcher implementation is used then the Jakarta HTTP Client and Jakarta Commons Logging is required.

To build and run the unit tests for the Rome Fetcher the following additional dependencies are required:

  • servletapi version 2.3
  • jetty 4.2.12

Note that Maven will automatically download the correct versions of all dependancies.
