Subject AW: How to configure maven-dependency-plugin's encoding used for unpack?
Date Tue, 17 Mar 2015 07:27:39 GMT
Kristian,

you're kidding, don't you? ;-)

what you propose does not work. We are an ISV providing a download for virtually anybody.
We cannot tell the world "Hey, you cannot simply use Windows to unzip, but you must first
download some other application, because we're using Maven, and it is unable to deal with
encodings.". :-(

We are NOT packaging a "jar" file. We are packaging a "zip" file. In fact I never mentioned
"jar" AFAIK. That one is publicly downloadable. Some team told us they use that "zip" as a
dependency and need to unpack it as part of their "prepare-package" phase (they only need
some files, not the full zip). At that moment, then file names are turned into garbage. If
there is headroom, then let's use that headroom. All we demand is a way to tell in the POM
that the plexus "zip unarchiver" used by maven-dependency-plugin for that single artifactItem
shall use CP850. :-)

I'm talking about http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MDEP-436

Thank you for your kind help.

Regards
-Markus

There is no way to specify unarchiver encoding in the dependency plugin, I have checked. So
currently you have to make your users install a less brain dead zip program than the windows
compressed folder mechanism.

I am also slightly questioning of what you are trying to achieve here; if you are unpacking
a "jar" file then it *will* and *should* be UTF8, meaning you cannot use the lobotomized zip
support that is included in windows, no matter what. I don't see us fixing /that/ issue, since
we'd be violating the jar specification. If your dependency is to an actual "zip" file, we
have slightly more headroom, and such a patch might be applied.

I am not sure which issue you are referring to, I know there is one for assembly-plugin (http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MASSEMBLY-748)
since the encoding feature should be fixed to work for "unpack" too.

Kristian
