Subject [jira] Created: (HTTPCLIENT-768) Publish source/javadoc jar files to the Maven repository
Date Wed, 30 Apr 2008 18:01:55 GMT
Publish source/javadoc jar files to the Maven repository

                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-768
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-768
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Documentation, HttpClient
    Affects Versions: 4.0 Alpha 3
            Reporter: Chris Hubick
            Priority: Minor

It would be really nice if HttpComponents (Core and Client) published jar files to the Maven
repository for not just the bytecode, but also for the source and javadoc (done by defining
a "classifier" attribute of "javadoc" or "source" for the jar when publishing with Maven).

Having these in the Maven repo allows an IDE (like Eclipse) to auto-download and attach the
source/javadoc to the HttpComponent jar files - meaning developers will then see the API documentation
automatically in their IDE.  This also greatly aids debugging if one needs to step through
HttpComponent code, and placing the source in the hands of more developers also means you
might see more patches coming back.
