Subject [jira] Commented: (MJAR-39) Maven Sets Manifest Attribute Values to Multi-Line Strings
Date Sat, 29 Apr 2006 20:14:19 GMT

Steven Coco commented on MJAR-39:

This issue is related to MJAR-39 in that since it sets the Specification-Title element by
default to the POM's <description> element, it easily can create an invalid Manifest.

>          Key: MJAR-39
>          URL:
>      Project: Maven 2.x Jar Plugin
>         Type: Bug

>     Versions: 2.0
>  Environment: Maven version: 2.0.4
> Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
>     Reporter: Steven Coco
>  Attachments: Jar Specification-Title
>      Maven will set a Manifest attribute's value to a multi-line string, which results
in an invalid Manifest.
>      By default, on its own, Maven adds a Specification-Title attribute to the Manifest,
and sets its value to the POM's <description> element.  If this is a multi-line value
in the POM, Maven will insert it unchanged: and yield an invalid Manifest.  Maven then can't
even load the jar that it just created itself!
>      I have filed another bug relating to the fact that it should not insert such an
attribute by default: MJAR-38
