Subject [jira] Closed: (MASSEMBLY-227) Support 'store-only' (no-compression) jar files
Date Tue, 09 Jun 2009 16:42:42 GMT


John Casey closed MASSEMBLY-227.

         Assignee: John Casey
       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 2.2)

This should be fixed at least as far back as -beta-4. The trick is to use the archiverConfig
parameter in the plugin configuration within the POM itself[1]. In this case, you'd want to
use <compress>false</compress>.

> the jar utility supports a -0 option that, when supplied, skips zip compression for the
resulting jar file.  This is desirable when creating jar dependencies that consist of large
binary files - one wants access to the binaries to be as fast as possible at runtime with
no decompression overhead.
> jdcasey tells me that there's an option on the underlying library to skip compression,
but that it's not configurable on the assembly plugin itself.  With that in mind, hopefully
this is just a matter of exposing functionality rather than implementing it anew.
