Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3700) Get rid of tools/java/empty.jar
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2008 14:25:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3700?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12601633#action_12601633
] 

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-3700:
-------------------------------------------

The point is that we'll have one less *binary* file under source
control. Since it's a source code repository, I think we should try to
have as few binary files as possible. The patch basically replaces a
binary file with one line of source code that generates a replacement
for it at build-time. Whether it generates an empty jar or an empty
directory is not important, but the ant command for making a directory
was shorter. :)

> 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.
