Subject Dependencies on jars in 1.1 and beyond
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2006 02:35:48 GMT

I have a situation where I need to make several web modules dependent 
upon a large number of jars.  I'd like to add the jars to the Geronimo 
repo and add the dependencies into the plans for the web modules. 
However, most of the jars don't follow the maven naming convention 
because the names don't include a version (and I'd rather not rename all 
the jars).

I know that there are changes being included in 1.1 to make the version 
in a reference optional.  However, I doubt that it is possible to 
reference a jar in the repo that doesn't contain any version.  Just 
thought I should ask in case it really is possible.  I could see where 
this might be something users would like when they have picked up jars 
from various places which may or may not contain a version in the jar 

If it *is* possible to have a non-versioned jar in the repo ... how do 
we differentiate in geronimo 1.1 between a dependency on a non-versioned 
jar versus a dependency on the latest version of a jar (in case both are 

Thanks for the help,
