Build Mapguide on Solaris

Description

We would need Java support (upon Sun Solaris 9) for MapGuide - we would not like to switch to ArcGIS Server that only emulates the Windows COM objects. Most of our production environments are upon UNIX and Java. Java on Windows is omitted.

We see it as a blocker for our business.

Currently only RHEL / CentOS Linux distributions are tested. Other Linux distributions don't get much attention due to lack of time, so I don't see UNIX platforms (with even smaller user base) targetted without additional resources.

Have you tried compiling MapGuide on Solaris? Others have tried on various Linux distributions and documented their efforts here:

If it's important to you, please get involved in making it work on Solaris. You can get a lot done for the cost of an ArcGIS Server license.
