Subject Re: [VOTE] Release OpenMeetings 2.0-incubating (Candidate 2)
Date Wed, 27 Jun 2012 12:10:38 GMT
@sebb About the duplicated JARs in our binary packages:
Those JARs are different from the JARs in WEB-INF/lib or Server's lib.
Those JARs are signed by a certificate and used by a Java Web-Start
application. This Web-Start application is the Screensharing/Recording
client during conference sessions in OpenMeetings.
That is why those JARs are duplicated in different folders.
I don't think we will change anything about that, the signed JARs for the
client and the Web-Applications JARs should stay in different folders.
There might be a way to virtually make the JARs from the server's lib
folder available for the Web-Start application but I don't think mixing
those JARs will have a good effect on how easy it is for 3th party to
understand which JARs are necessary for the Web-Start client.
End users might for example use their own certificate to sign those JARs to
get rid of WebStarts warning box. If we obfuscate the path to the JARs by
mixing them there will be no additional value for the end user.
