Subject [jira] Created: (AMQ-1040) Full src-jar distributed with binary
Date Fri, 10 Nov 2006 13:26:02 GMT
Full src-jar distributed with binary

                 Key: AMQ-1040
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 4.1
         Environment: n/a
            Reporter: Endre Stølsvik

For absolutely all developers (extrapolating from one person, myself), a src-jar that comes
with the "bin" distribution makes the world a better place to live.

With a src jar, you only add the full jar, "attach" the src-jar, and you're _rellay_ good
to go both developing but not least stack-tracing and debugging. The src-jar should include
sources for most of the stuff that actually reside in the full jar, if not all.

Eclipse: if you include the "full jar", it's slightly problematic to include a whole bunch
of dirs from the src-distro. You'll end up having to include all those lib jars, and on each
of them put the corresponding src dir.

The whole thing won't bloat the distro very much - but will relieve very many developers from
having to download the extra distro, and from the annoyance of not being able to just configure
one simple jar with src-attachment.
