Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2-4888) The org.apache.axis2:axis2 Maven artifact should not have a classifier
Date Thu, 18 Nov 2010 21:05:15 GMT


Andreas Veithen commented on AXIS2-4888:


Just before the 1.5.3 I added an assembly (src/main/assembly/dists.xml) that produces the
directory structure (distributions+MD5+PGP) that needs to be deployed to
This assembly uses ${settings.localRepository} because the checksum and signature files can
only be retrieved from the local repository. This property is only supported in maven-assembly-plugin
>= 2.2. However, starting with version 2.2, maven-assembly-plugin uses a different approach
to generate artifacts without classifiers [1]. After upgrading to 2.2 for the 1.5.3 release,
the axis2.jar got a classifier ('jar') while in previous releases it had no classifier.

It should be noted that it is in general not a good idea to use org.apache.axis2:axis2 as
a Maven dependency because it doesn't declare its dependencies. Instead, individual modules
(such as axis2-kernel) should be used as dependencies. axis2.jar is useful mainly for projects
that don't use Maven, and for these projects, the fact that there is an additional '-jar'
in the name is not a big issue.
