Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1529) The Eclipse plug-in distributions (UI and Core zip files) do not contain the Apache license, copyright or notice files

Susan Cline commented on DERBY-1529:

Andrew - I'm not sure about the best way to handle this but it doesn't make sense to me to
update the plugins/eclipse/Readme.txt file because the Readme.txt file doesn't really say
how to produce a zip file suitable for distribution.  To me the intent of the file was more
how to build the plugins if you are a developer in the Eclipse environment - not as a zip
file suitable for distribution.

What this file explains is how to create two zip files - one for the ui plugin and one for
the doc plugin, however when creating the zip for the doc plugin Eclipse does not export it
correctly (at least I can not figure out a way do to it) so it creates the plugin directory
as the parent directory.

Right now creating the "UI" plugin is very much a manual process -

create the zip file for the UI plugin by exporting deployable fragments
create a zip file for the doc plugin (which does not create the required plugin parent directory)

unzip both of these (unzipping the doc plugin into the subdirectory of the "plugin" dir)

manually adding the NOTICE and LICENSE files to the subdirectory of each plugins directory
(e.g, org.apache.derby.ui_1.1.0 and org.apache.derby.plugin.doc_1.1.0) 

then creating a new zip and naming it derby_ui_plugin_1.1.0.zip

Maybe we should have a different document for creating the zip file suitable for distribution?
