Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-908) Lucli doesn't include standard MANIFEST.MF
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2007 21:57:26 GMT


Hoss Man commented on LUCENE-908:

the existing jar logic in common-build.xml could be refacotred into a macro with a a nested
tag option so that contribs could add additional items, that would probably be the cleanest
way to support MANIFEST.MF add ons.

on a related subject, when i was setting up the solr MANIFEST.MF i discovered lots of things
are "wrong" about the way Lucene's MANIFEST file is built (aparently i never raised them in
lucene-java, or if i did we never did anythng about them), here are the comments from Solr's
build.xml that we may also want to fix...
        <!-- Don't set 'Manifest-Version' it identifies the version of the
             manifest file format, and should allways be 1.0 (the default)

             Don't set 'Created-by' attribute, it's purpose is 
             to identify the version of java used to build the jar,
             which ant will do by default.

             Ant will happily override these with bogus strings if you
             tell it to, so don't.

             NOTE: we don't use section info because all of our manifest data
             applies to the entire jar/war ... no package specific info.
        <!-- spec version must match "digit+{.digit+}*" -->
        <!-- impl version can be any string -->

> Is there a particular reason why lucli has it's own MANIFEST.MF file? Lucli's build.xml
> has an own "jar" target and does not use the jar target from common-build.xml. The result
> is that the MANIFEST.MF file does not contain infos like "Created-By Apache Lucene Java",
> neither does META-INF contain LICENSE.TXT and NOTICE.TXT.
> Is there a reason why lucli behaves different in this regard? If not I think we should
fix this.
