Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQ-1040) Full src-jar distributed with binary
Date Sat, 29 Aug 2009 17:46:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/activemq/browse/AMQ-1040?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=53890#action_53890
] 

Endre Stølsvik commented on AMQ-1040:
-------------------------------------

That's an absurd resolution.

Not that what others do SHALL dictate what you do - but it is not exactly totally unheard
of to include a src-jar in a distribution of an open source project.

Having to find the damn tag and URL, set up and check out from SVN to develop with your system
is .. just .. absurd. No less.

> 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.
