Subject Big slowdown on Linux when upgrading assembly plugin from 2.2-beta-1 to 2.2-beta-3
Date Wed, 21 Jan 2009 10:27:10 GMT

Our build on Linux (redhat) has more than doubled in time since we upgraded
the assembly plugin from 2.2-beta-1 to 2.2-beta-3.

I did some testing with a tiny project for different versions of the
assembly plugin:
2.2-beta-1:   9 seconds
2.2-beta-2:  17 seconds
2.2-beta-3:  30 seconds

The project is really small, it contains only 1 source file. The assembly
plugin declaration in the pom is:


The descriptor.xml includes a few local files and then about 20 jars from
dependencies, most of them are included through the transitive mechanism.


Any idea what causes the slowdown? How can we avoid id?

We are running Java 1.6 and Maven 2.0.9. We use an Artifactory proxy but it
should not be a factor as I run the tests repeatedly so everything should be
in the local repo.
