Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-586) Maven - Solr Artifact Publishing
Date Sat, 09 Aug 2008 18:12:45 GMT


Shalin Shekhar Mangar commented on SOLR-586:

bq. A third POM to install the Data Import Handler jar file as a separate artifact. This will
become obsolete if/when DIH is included in the Solr Common jar.
DIH is a contrib project which means it will always be a separate artifact.

bq. I agree that sources jars would be helpful ... and javadoc jars as well, for that matter
I agree that source and javadoc jars will be useful. Javadocs are already generated separately
for solrj and DIH but not as jars. The solr-commons and solr core javadocs are combined together
currently. We will need modifications to build files to generate javadoc and source jars for
each of the artifacts separately.

bq. I'll take a crack at updating the install script, once the Solr build process produces
sources and javadoc jars in addition to the current binary jars.
I think it would be better to integrate maven deploy with the ant builds similar to how Lucene
does it.

I'm going to start making the changes. Hope to post a patch soon.

This issue differs from that in that it does not concern the build process of the solr project,
but rather simple dependency management for maven projects that depend on the solr artifacts.
 I've outlined a way to easily incorporate solrj + dependencies into your own maven projects,
in hopes that others doing this find it useful.  
> This issue's purpose is twofold:
> 1) Let others know the process.
> 2) Open the idea of whether this can be streamlined/incorporated into the standard build
in some manner.
> Depending on Solrj in a Maven Project
> 1) Build a 1.3 snapshot.
>   1.1) Check out the code from
>   1.2) Build using "ant dist" 
> 2) Install the artifacts into your maven repo, using the included pom files.
>   2.1) Move to your dist/apache-solr-1.3-dev/dist directory.
>   2.2) Copy the attached pom files into this directory.
>   2.3) Install solr-common into your repo.
>     ex) mvn install:install-file -Dfile=apache-solr-common-1.3-dev.jar -DpomFile=solr-common.pom.xml
>   2.4) Install solrj into your repo.
>     ex) mvn install:install-file -Dfile=apache-solr-solrj-1.3-dev.jar -DpomFile=solrj.pom.xml
> 3) Use Solrj in your existing Maven projects by including it as a dependency in your
own pom.xml
>         <dependency>
>             <groupId>org.apache.lucene.solr</groupId>
>             <artifactId>solrj</artifactId>
>             <version>1.3-SNAPSHOT</version>
>         </dependency>
> So given the above process, it seems like it would be relatively simple to standardize
this process by:
> 1) Including the solr-common and solrj pom files w/ the dist.  
> 2) Automating the periodic installation of the artifacts to a central repo, such as the
ibiblio repo.  
> If those steps were performed, then creating a (maven) project based on solrj would be
super simple: just #3 from above.  Since most custom developments are probably for the clients,
it seems like simplifying this would be a nice step to take.
