Subject Re: What is the purpose of camel-core-xml? Move the code to camel-core?
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2011 19:45:49 GMT
That's a modularity problem.  If we want Camel to behave nicely in
OSGi (and that's not the only reason), we need to be modular, i.e.
have jars that can focus on one thing instead of having a single jar
with all dependencies being optional.    It really helps managing
dependencies both internally and externally.

If you really want a big fat jar, we could consider building one in
addition to the small jars, kinda like what CXF does.  There may be
use cases for that, but that does not mean it should be the only
packaging.
