Subject Re: Going for OpenCMIS release 0.3.0 today
Date Tue, 22 Mar 2011 16:24:06 GMT
Hey Jens,
was going to implement this change for the release, but I still need to grasp the overall
meaning of it. 

ATM the contains:

$ unzip
  inflating: LICENSE          
  inflating: DEPENDENCIES     
  inflating: NOTICE           
  inflating: chemistry-opencmis-server-bindings-0.3.0-SNAPSHOT.war  
  inflating: chemistry-opencmis-server-support-0.3.0-SNAPSHOT.jar 

IIUC you would like the build create ZIP a as such:

- chemistry-opencmis-server-bindings-0.3.0-SNAPSHOT.war  (with WEB-INF/lib of this WAR containing
also chemistry-opencmis-server-support-0.3.0-SNAPSHOT.jar)

Is this correct? Or (like it seems in the last email) you want a WEB-INF/lib in side the ZIP

In general, I don't really see the point of creating a ZIP which only contains a WAR + LICENSE/DEPENDENCIES
files inside (BTW also contained in the WARs META-INF).
Can't we just add server-support.jar as a dependency for server-bindings.war (so it will be
included in WEB-INF/lib) and maybe make the WAR available on /dist, so you can simply download
and run it? (in this case will simply be dropped)

Would this match your requirement?

together with the others in WEB-INF/lib of the .war file. This would be less confusing for
people who want to build a server. We could in future improve documentation and indicate which
jars are needed and which are optional. But 99% probably don't care about the few bytes needed
on disk.
