Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2983) Separate javascript resources (jquery, flot) from monitor
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2014 18:59:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2983?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14055312#comment-14055312

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-2983:
---------------------------------------------

For more details about why these may not be included in other packages is because (at the
very least) obfuscated/minimized code is not considered free software, according to http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html
or open source, according to http://opensource.org/osd .

Additionally, because of these definitions, it may also mean that we shouldn't be releasing
the minimized versions of these libraries in our source release. Rather, they should be minimized
during the build.

> The javascript resources (namely jquery, and flot) are included directly in the monitor
jar, for inclusion on the classpath. The monitor then loads these resources, as needed, from
the classpath.
> Since these are third-party libraries, it may be better to include them as a dependency,
and put them in the lib directory.
> At the very least, this would help with downstream packaging, especially in situations
where third-party libraries cannot be included in a package, but it may help in other situations,
if we need to swap out a different version of jquery/flot dependencies.
