JAX from IBM does this. Check out their Alphaworks site. Not sure what the
license is.

Betreff: and finally - <shake/>...

Has anyone thought about or come across  a predicate/piece-of-code that
could do this :

<shake outputjar="yyy" classpath="ccc">
 <shakeroot name="com.mycom.MyServlet"?>
 <shakeroot pattern="com.mycom.MyDynamicallyLoadedClass*"/>

where shake figures out which classes all the shakeroots depend upon and
copies  these and the shakeroots into the outputjar.

This would drastically reduce the size of some of the jars that I ship.

I could take 3rd party jars that I consume, break them open and do this
by hand, but it would be nicer to be able to do it at deployment.

If I am dynamically loading classes, then I would have to mention them
as shakeroots before I shake !

Anyone care to comment,
