Subject [jira] [Closed] (MJAVADOC-431) Allow Javadoc Jar to contain Maven descriptor
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2015 22:34:46 GMT


Michael Osipov closed MJAVADOC-431.
    Resolution: Fixed

Fixed with [r1720689|].

> Allow Javadoc Jar to contain Maven descriptor
> ---------------------------------------------
>                 Key: MJAVADOC-431
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Javadoc Plugin
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.10.3
>            Reporter: Peter lynch
>            Assignee: Michael Osipov
>             Fix For: 2.10.4
> The javadoc:jar mojo explicitly prevents the Maven descriptor from being added to the
produced javadoc.jar file.
> I could not find an explanation or technical reason why this is done.
> Adding the maven descriptor to the javadoc jar can help expose valuable information about
the build that produced it and should be at the discretion of the build process.
> Expected:
> - allow the archiver used to create the javadoc jar to respect the plexus archiver configuration
if it is configured to include the Maven descriptor.
> - preserve the default behaviour of not including the Maven descriptor, for (unknown)
backwards compatibility reasons only
