Subject Core or Optional?
Date Fri, 11 Jan 2002 09:10:56 GMT

looking at our lib directory we have 32 jar files in it! 
This really shows the power of Cocoon to integrate/combine the different
projects and solutions, but on the other hand it makes the distribution
rather big and slightly confusing.

Some jars are essential to the core of Cocoon, some are most often required
and some are rarely used optional ones.

Can we reflect this with a better (directory) structure?

I suggested some weeks ago that we create an opt directory parallel to the 
src/java directory to identify optional components, for example:

src + java
    + opt  + fop + conf + fop.sitemap (The configuration of the fop sitemap
                 + lib + fop.jar
                 + src + org ...
                 + sample + ...
           + batik ...
           + deli  ...
           + jtidy ....

Then the lib directory would only contain the necessary jar files for the
core of cocoon.

I will start right now and finish the remaining part of the new directory
structure and create the tools directory. THis will move at least the
two ant files out of the lib directory.
