Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-2288) Abstract/Maven repositories install modules incorrectly
Date Mon, 07 Aug 2006 14:57:13 GMT
Abstract/Maven repositories install modules incorrectly
-------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMO-2288
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-2288
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: kernel, Plugins
    Affects Versions: 1.1
            Reporter: Aaron Mulder
         Assigned To: Aaron Mulder
             Fix For: 1.2, 1.1.1


The repository unpacks a JAR when it installs it only if the Artifact type is "car".  That
is incorrect -- it should unpack any module with META-INF/config.ser (which is the logic that
we use in other places, such as RepositoryConfigurationStore).  This breaks plugins that don't
have the type "car" (such as copying a database pool from server to server).

The currently handling attempts to be generic by associating a behavior with each file type,
though in practice this is only used for type=car.  In the 1.1 branch, I am going to put in
a workaround to look up the "car" handler any time we find a META-INF/config.ser (a pretty
minimal workaround).

In trunk, I think we should remove the behavior/type association and instead have a boolean
for whether configurations should be unpacked, or an "ArtifactTypeHandler" property specifically
for configurations and another one for non-configurations.  I don't see any reason to distinguish
based on module type.  Input would be appreciated for the 1.2 resolution.
