                 Key: GERONIMO-4323
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4323
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: deployment
    Affects Versions: 2.2
            Reporter: David Jencks
            Assignee: David Jencks
             Fix For: 2.2


AbstractRepository.copyToRepository bases the decision on whether to unpack or copy an artifact
on the type.  Since all it gets is a stream and artifact, I don't see any obvious ways to
change this behavior: to actually detect if something is a plugin you'd have to look at the
content, which isn't available when the decision is made.

I can see several ways out:

1. make all plugins be of type car
2. make packed plugins work (would require a new classloader and might cause difficulties
with tomcat and openejb integration)
3. copy the file packed, peek inside, and unpack if necessary.

Unless there's strong opposition I'm going to try to implement (1).
