Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-11205) Move Groovy scripts from /groovyScripts/ to /src/main/groovy/
Date Sun, 02 Feb 2020 14:18:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-11205?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=17028452#comment-17028452

Mathieu Lirzin commented on OFBIZ-11205:


Having dynamic development capabilities and distributing code inside a jar are not conflicting
requirements as long as the loading mechanism can access the source files. In a development
environment you do not use a jar directly, the build tool (gradle) use sub-directories inside
the {{build}} directory and make the classpath point to those directories. {{gradlew --continuous}}
ensures that the {{build}} directory is in sync with the source one which enable dynamic development.

Having all the framework code and  resources inside the jar is just a commodity of distribution
facilitating the execution and extension of OFBiz outside of the context of the framework

Does it help understanding the absence of conflicts?

> Here is the (simple) plan:
> 1. We move all Groovy scripts from /groovyScripts/ to /src/main/groovy/
> 2. We add the necessary packages names
> 3. Devs can then open "gradlew --continuous" in a terminal and let it like that. It will
continuously build on any changes in Gradle sourcesets 
> So, if you modify a Groovy scripts while running an OFBiz instance, the changes will
be reflected in the instance and you can check possible syntax or alike issues in the terminal
running the continuous build. It's very fast since only changes have an impact on the build.
> I'm sure there are other benefits to follow "the common convention of putting groovy
compiled sources in ${COMPONENT}/src/main/groovy.", as suggested Mathieu.

was not optimum, and the possibility to re-use methods from these script migrated to explicit
