Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-2705) add jar sources in repository for snapshot builds
Date Fri, 01 Jan 2010 05:33:55 GMT

Barrie Treloar commented on MNG-2705:
-------------------------------------

I'm being lazy and lowering the barrier for people to submit bugs.

For example, a common problem I had while trying to fix problems:
I am working on plugin A which has more than one other snapshot dependency B, C, D, etc.

I only want to checkout plugin A since I am pretty sure the bug is there.
I do not want to have to chase the dragons tail and check out all snapshot dependencies on
the chance that the problem is in one of those. 

Now when I am debugging plugin A because the snapshot dependencies have been downloaded from
the snapshot repository and because the source jar is not available I can not step the debugger
into these dependencies - since all I get is the bytecodes. 

If I find that the problem is in a dependent plugin, only then do I want to checkout from
svn and run mvn install so I can fix it.

As has been noted I can checkout the source for these myself and install them locally, but
this is a waste of time and effort for all the plugins that work as expected.

> When using IDE like eclipse, it would be great to have dependecies sources (optionnaly)
added to repository.
> This way eclipse plugin (and others) could generate a .classpath file that set "source
attachement" and allow code and javadoc consult, debuging and inherited methods implementation
with original parameters names.
