Add MapR client as framework to the java buildpack #cf
To use MapR (like the MapR-DB, MapR Streams or MapR filesystem) the client application needs client libraries stored in the filesystem. I created a fork of the official java buildpack for cloud foundry. In this fork I added the MapR client as framework component. Are there any possibilities to integrate this fork with the original java buildpack?
For our company it would be much easier to just use the official java buildpack without the need to rebase the fork each time the java buildpack gets any updates. Also everyone else who wants to use MapR from a java application inside Cloud Foundry would benefit from this solution.
