Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-935) Run/Assemble Accumulo from Maven target directory
Date Fri, 04 Jan 2013 19:30:13 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-935:

I think the most appropriate place to stage a runnable Accumulo distribution in one's workspace
(helpful for developers) is probably in the assemble/target directory. This would simplify
much of the pom files that store artifacts in "../lib". Instead, the assemble project can
simply depend on the modules it assembles, and use copy-dependencies to stage things in assemble/target/accumulo_home/lib.
This eliminates a lot of additional configuration being done that assumes all modules are
checked out and being built together, and removes complexity in plugin configurations to specify
their output directories.

> Too much of Accumulo's build runs directly out of the project directories, including
some in directories designated as "src". Temporary files are sometimes created outside the
source directories during unit tests, and other issues. This has caused us to jump through
hoops to exclude these temporary files during version control, packaging, and assembly. Instead
of jumping through these hoops, we can make sure everything created by the build, including
running Accumulo directly out of one's workspace is all done from a Maven /target directory.
This will simplify our svn:ignore and .gitignore configuration, as well as make it easier
to package and assemble only the pieces we want to include, rather than include a bunch of
exceptions in the Maven build configuration.
