Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4115) JAR resolution/ cleanup should be done automatically for ant clean/ eclipse/ resolve.
Date Sat, 09 Jun 2012 18:27:43 GMT


Dawid Weiss commented on LUCENE-4115:

I don't agree -- the current situation in which you need to remember about cleaning up jars
and resolving again is confusing. It should be syncing automatically with respect to the contents
of ivy files. If you need a temporary jar, oh well, modify the ivy file. Given the tradeoff
between the two situations I'm opting for having an automagic sync that the need to remember
to do cleanups manually every time.

Currently we 'ant resolve' on ant test anyway so it's half-way to full syncing to me.

A middle ground would be to have ant clean/eclipse/idea resync everything and 'ant test' and
'ant resolve' not do anything special, but like I said -- I think it should be consistent
with ivy files. For better or worse, that's the reason we have them -- to specify dependencies.

>            Priority: Trivial
>             Fix For: 4.0, 5.0
>         Attachments: LUCENE-4111.patch, LUCENE-4115.patch
> I think we should add the following target deps:
> ant clean [depends on] clean-jars
> ant resolve [depends on] clean-jars
> ant eclipse [depends on] resolve, clean-jars
> ant idea [depends on] resolve, clean-jars
> This eliminates the need to remember about cleaning up stale jars which users complain
about (and I think they're right about it). The overhead will be minimal since resolve is
only going to copy jars from cache. Eclipse won't have a problem with updated JARs if they
end up at the same location.
> If there are no objections I will fix this in a few hours.
