Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3405) maven artifacts should be equivalent to binary packaging
Date Wed, 25 Apr 2012 14:28:19 GMT


Steven Rowe commented on SOLR-3405:

bq. So, this time without avoiding the question: why should we not publish solr-core on Maven

Because maven requires that its dependencies are also in maven, whereas the binary distribution
does not: it exposes its "innards".

This is an argument against Maven generally, not exclusively the Solr artifacts; I view it
as a thinly veiled re-assertion that Lucene/Solr should not support Maven at all.  Again:

The fix here is not to stop publishing on Maven Central, but rather as you say on the issue:
make the Maven Central artifacts like the binary artifacts.  Using your logic, excluding solr-core
from the Maven Central artifacts would make the two "not the same", and hence would be WRONG!!!

> Lets take the commons-csv scenario: 
> * apache-solr-3.5.0 binary distribution contains no actual commons-csv.jar anywhere,
>   in fact it contains no third party jars (the stuff present in solr/lib) at all.
> * binary distribution contains only the jars necessary for *solrj* and *contrib plugins*,
and a solr.war
> I think the maven artifacts should match whats in the binary release (no third party
> inside the .war are "exposed", we just publish the .war itself). This exposes a lot less
surface area.
