Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-4430) Lucene Demo module should not ship with servlet-api.jar file
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2012 21:52:07 GMT
Uwe Schindler created LUCENE-4430:

             Summary: Lucene Demo module should not ship with servlet-api.jar file
                 Key: LUCENE-4430
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 4.0-BETA
            Reporter: Uwe Schindler
            Assignee: Uwe Schindler
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 4.1, 5.0, 4.0

As noted in SOLR-3879, Mike's new check in the smoketester found out that Lucene's binary
release ships with a servlet-api.jar file in the Lucene demo module. This file is an interface-only
file and is provided by the servlet container where you would run the webapp.

This file should be removed from the binary release (the License is also questionable, because
the "original" Sun License of servlet-api.jar was CDDL, although thats unimportant because
it is an API definition file and not a implementation with actual program code. Shipping any
binary code with servlet-api.jar is as wrong as shipping a Java project with JDK's rt.jar

In general we should (in another issue) restructure our lib folders and differentiate (using
IVY configs) between compile-time dependencies and run-time dependencies. Servlet-api.jar
is a typical example for a pure-compile-time dep.
