Subject [jira] Commented: (MDEP-68) Make dependency:unpack of tar files support symlinks
Date Fri, 01 Jan 2010 01:05:55 GMT


Dan Tran commented on MDEP-68:

this is because excludes/includes configurations are are totally ignored by plexus-archiver's

perhaps we can use mojo's truezip component from truezip-maven-plugin, instead of plexus archiver,
which has a very flexible configuration and therefor could solve a bunch of issues related
to unpack

> Could dependency:unpack of tar file be made to support symlinks?  The use case is deploying
unix/linux shared libraries, with symlinks between different versions of the libraries.
> The current behaviour is that the symlinks becomes 0 byte sized files.
