Subject [jira] Updated: (MASSEMBLY-125) add mojo for creating a source bundle
Date Tue, 09 Jun 2009 16:36:42 GMT


John Casey updated MASSEMBLY-125:

    Fix Version/s:     (was: 2.2)

we're going to need to add a feature to the dependency-resolution code in the assembly plugin
in order to resolve the source/project-src artifacts instead of the dependency binaries.

> -------------------------------------
>                 Key: MASSEMBLY-125
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Assembly Plugin
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Ovidio Mallo
>             Fix For: 2.3-beta-1
> I think it would be nice to have some mojo "source:jar-with-dependencies" or something
similar which not only includes the artifact's sources into the JAR but also those of its
transitive dependencies. This would e.g. allow to create a source bundle for an assembly created
with Maven.
> As a concrete example, the "Maven 2.x Plugin for Eclipse" project, which is no Maven
but a simple PDE project, uses the MavenEmbedder assembly. There, it would be very handy to
also have such a source bundle to attach to the assembly JAR file inside Eclipse for developing
and especially for debugging.
> Would there maybe be any interest (beside my single use case :-)) in such a feature?
If so, I would eventually give it a try myself if I find the time...
