Subject Re: Proposal to remove processing of geronimo-service.xml files in dependencies
Date Mon, 27 Dec 2004 19:11:58 GMT
After thinking about this some more I think the major issue is that one 
cannot tell from the top level plan whether a dependency is a plain jar 
or if it includes a 570-node tree of recursive sub-dependencies.  
Renaming and autogenerating the xml config file, while good ideas, 
won't help with this problem.
