Subject Re: Scala 2.10/2.11 Maven dependencies
Date Mon, 26 Oct 2015 15:17:54 GMT
I would be in favor of deploying also Scala 2.11 artifacts to Maven since
more and more people will try out Flink with Scala 2.11. Having the
dependencies in the Maven repository makes it considerably easier for
people to get their Flink jobs running.

Furthermore, I observed that people are not aware that our deployed
artifacts, e.g. flink-runtime, are built with Scala 2.10. As a consequence,
they mix flink dependencies with other dependencies pulling in Scala 2.11
and then they wonder that the program crashes. It would be, imho, clearer
if all our dependencies which depend on a specific Scala version would have
the corresponding Scala suffix appended.

Adding the 2.10 suffix would also spare us the hassle of upgrading to a
newer Scala version in the future, because then the artifacts wouldn't
share the same artifact name.

Cheers,
Till
