Subject AW: AW: AW: Distinguishing Adobe from Apache SDKs?
Date Wed, 27 Jun 2012 17:00:48 GMT

I think you got me wrong on the company repo thing.
The repo is not public. It's just for usage inside the company. So I don't think this should
be a problem.
It's just something everybody will have to do over and over again.

And I was suggesting to volunteer to publish the artifacts for Apache ... so if they have
something new 
Apache could offer their services to do it for them, if they want this to happen.

Regarding my deployment algorithm:
I look at the  lib directory of the SDK. Take every jar in it and deploy it (I acutally create
a checksum from the jar and ask maven central if such an artifact has allready been deployed.
If yes, it uses that dependency instead).
After all jars are deployed I create one master pom, that references all of these jars. Not
much more magic to that. Deploying the Flex Framework is much more tricky. I will gladly publish
the code of my deployer as soon as I'm sattisfied with it. Currently I still need to finish
deploying of the air runntimes and then some quite intense testing.

I am not a lawyer, but my undestanding is that you can download the playerglobal and airglobal
files and store them in your company's repo, but you cannot make it available outside your
company without an agreement from Adobe.

Similarly, an Apache volunteer does not have permission to copy these files up to Maven's
central repo.  It might be possible for Adobe (including me) to decide to copy those files
up there themselves, especially if there is an easy recipe to follow.

I'd be interested if how these files are distributed is an important issue for other Maven
