Subject AW: Pack200?
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2005 07:39:11 GMT
Because Pack200 is part of "standard" java and it should improve java apps
(especially WebStart) I think we should have something like a <pack200> ...

But when JDK 1.5 came out (as beta I think) we had a discussion [1] already...

Searching [2] the mailinglist I found a note to an external library [3] which could
produce a pack200 file. Not sure if it´s usable like <jar> but I would spend some
time to check .... before writing my own implementation ;-)

But back to the discussion. Main points were
- core task / optional task / antlib
- enhance existing <jar> or create a new task
But time goes on (that dicussion was in February 2004) and now we should have to think
about implementing the things around ResourceCollections [4,5] on that.
