Subject [WARN] Strange things
Date Wed, 22 May 2002 12:46:48 GMT
Hi, Cocooners!

I've just made a clean checkout of Cocoon and noticed several strange

1) Running the build:

>build.bat -Dinclude.webapp.libs=yes webapp

results in a 17 min. building process, which includes everything is
possible: documentation generation, apidocs, and even the scratchpad.jar
building. Can anybody of build.xml gurus take a look at it. I don't think
that it is the intended behavior. And I'm sure that scratchpad jar should be
built only for 'installscratchpadwar' (is there a 'scratchpadwebapp'
target?) target, cause it can easily break the build.

2) The set of jars in lib:

commons-httpclient-20020423.jar  - where is it used?
commons-jpath-1.0b1.jar, commons-jxpath.jar - do we need both?
xt-19991105.jar - as I remember no one objected on removing XT support

There are many other JARs that have some unknown (to me) purpose. There is a
jars.xml document that should list all the used jars, but it's out of date
now. (Btw, Diana, can we force everybody who is adding a new jar to update
the documentation accordingly?)

3) emacs directory in the root

I suspect that this one comes from Ovidui. Shouldn't we place this kind of
stuff in some common place? Say:


I am also looking for a good place for i18n supporting stylesheets. Having
them in the samples is not a very good idea as they have nothing to do with
the samples and can lead to confusion.


P.S. We could simply rename scratchpad to 'contrib' or 'optional' and
provide it separately ;)
