Subject [vote]: Using excalibur subproject jars
Date Fri, 16 Aug 2002 09:23:44 GMT
Some time ago, the excalibur project has split up their distribution
of components into several subprojects. We use some of them (for
example the component, xmlutil, store subproject etc.).

Each of these subprojects creates its own library - the full
is only there for compatibility.

I would suggest that we skip to all these nice little jars
and remove the big avalon-excalibur.jar.

The advantages:
- We only include those subprojects we need
- We minimize the build problems with excalibur
- Updating for example to a new store implementation, requires only
  updating this subproject and not everything
- The JDK depency is limited to one small jar, the datasource subproject
  which is optional for Cocoon, so the Cocoon core is no longer JDK
- If a bug is in one excalibur subproject we only have to revert this
  subproject and not all.

- More smaller jars instead of one big one.

Here is my +1
