Subject [jira] Created: (DIREVE-134) Avoid merging third-party binaries in the main jar
Date Thu, 27 Jan 2005 11:01:17 GMT
Avoid merging third-party binaries in the main jar
--------------------------------------------------

         Key: DIREVE-134
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIREVE-134
     Project: Directory Server
        Type: Improvement
    Versions: 0.8    
    Reporter: Stephane Bailliez
 Assigned to: Alex Karasulu 


I would highly recommend modifying the packaging strategy.

Merging all dependencies into the main jar will be extremely painful for users, especially
those who need to embed it will more than certainly conflict with their version of antlr,
commons-collections, commons-lang, commons-logging, regexp, oro, aspectj.

If you want to merge, you need also to modify the packages so that there could be no conflict..
which is worth it for a product like Weblogic. Certainly not for ApacheDS

I think it would be better to use the Class-Path in the manifest to indicates clearly your
dependencies and also name the jar appropriately to figure out the version at first sight
(since the manifest versioning is often not used)
