Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3700) Get rid of tools/java/empty.jar
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2008 14:07:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3700?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12601627#action_12601627

Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-3700:
----------------------------------------

Is an empty directory better than an empty jar? Or is the point that we'd have
one less file under source control (and a somewhat confusing file, at that)?

> empty.jar is used to prevent the Java compiler from putting the default Java runtime
libraries in the boot classpath. An empty directory would also work, so we could remove the
jar file from the source repository and instead let the build scripts create an empty directory
for us.
