Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4115) JAR resolution/ cleanup should be done automatically for ant clean/ eclipse/ resolve.
Date Sat, 09 Jun 2012 18:13:44 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-4115:

I'm not sure we should really go to the trouble for this issue.

why can't developers just 'ant clean-jars' after they svn update? Really we are just talking
about committers etc tracking development branches here: they should be subscribed to the
commits@ list and watching what is happening. Jar upgrades should be no surprise.

The problem with doing all this automagic stuff is it makes things too automagic: what if
i just want to plop in a jar today to test it before dealing with maven etc? This works completely
fine today: but if we start rm'ing jars in 'resolve' then this becomes impossible.

if anything gets done on this issue, then personally i want it triggered by a property that
is completely defaulted to 'off'. If you want it on, put it in your ~/ etc.

>         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.
