Subject [v2] "combined" jar name?
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2012 01:32:01 GMT
Hi All:

I find the name "log4j-combined-2.0-beta3-SNAPSHOT.jar" unhelpful if not
confusing considering we produce:

api\target\log4j-api-2.0-beta3-SNAPSHOT.jar
combined\target\log4j-combined-2.0-beta3-SNAPSHOT.jar
core\target\log4j-core-2.0-beta3-SNAPSHOT.jar
flume-ng\target\log4j-flume-ng-2.0-beta3-SNAPSHOT.jar
jcl-bridge\target\log4j-jcl-2.0-beta3-SNAPSHOT.jar
log4j12-api\target\log4j12-api-2.0-beta3-SNAPSHOT.jar
slf4j-impl\target\slf4j-impl-2.0-beta3-SNAPSHOT.jar
web\target\log4j-web-2.0-beta3-SNAPSHOT.jar

So "combined" between what and what? I know it's api and core because I
read that recently around here but it's not crystal clear. How about
calling it log4j-api+core.jar just to be clear?

But my point really is that I'd prefer not to have to think about which
jars to include and just have a log4j-all.jar.

In one project I work with we are approaching 100 third party jars. I'd
rather have my Ivy (or Maven) build just say "log4j-all" just like I say
"jetty-all" and "cxf-bundle".

I know some folks have to worry about moving bytes around and sipping RAM,
but other folks don't, so now that we've made the 'give me lots of little
jars' crowd happy, can we make the 'keep it simple' crowd happy too with a
log4j-all.jar?

Gary
