Subject RE: maven jar versus ant jar
Date Tue, 01 Sep 2015 21:41:46 GMT
I found out why my maven jar is much bigger. It looks like it's including a dependency jar
inside the SNAPSHOT jar.  I installed this jar locally so I can compile but now it's being
included in the build itself.  So how do I exclude it when I do a mvn package ?

You can unpack the jar files to see what they include. This should help
you to find out what they makes fat or slimmer as the other one.

anybody tell me why this is so ?  Should they be different in sizes after  converting the
build to maven ? what should I be looking for causes of differences  ?
