Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-612) Add locale jars as ClassPath entries in derby.jar
Date Mon, 10 Oct 2005 18:54:47 GMT
Add locale jars as ClassPath entries in derby.jar
-------------------------------------------------

         Key: DERBY-612
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-612
     Project: Derby
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Build tools, Documentation, Localization  
    Reporter: Daniel John Debrunner


Adding the locale jars (derbyLocale_es.jar, derbyLocale_de_DE.jar etc.) as ClassPath manifest
entries in derby.jar would remove the need for users to add them to their class path. Thus
the only jars required in the user's classpath  would be:

derbynet.jar - running network server (already brings in derby.jar)

derby.jar - running embedded

This would add to the ease of use for Derby. The manifest entries could be generated based
off the list of locales or justr hardcoded in the build target for derby.jar (since they change
infrequently).

Since ClassPath entrries are ignored if the jars do no exist, this would do no harm in an
environment where none or a subset of the locare jars are shipped.
