Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3405) maven artifacts should be equivalent to binary packaging
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2012 19:01:35 GMT


Robert Muir commented on SOLR-3405:

Well i think so, I mean the way maven publishes solr, it publishes it as if it were an _api_,
not an application.
But the binary release treats solr as an application. This is a big difference!

Because of this we previously also published some war dependencies (commons-csv) also as _api_
in maven too.
This is what got people all upset, but if you look at our binary package we don't ever package
their stuff up this way.

Releasing an application is easier. we don't care about dependencies (except that they are
legal): just that our .war works.
and if the .war also wants to be in maven, then it should declare no dependencies (it works
by itself).

> 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.
