Subject Re: Can enhancer operate on jar files?
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2007 17:42:13 GMT
Hi Dain,

In answer to your original question, yes I agree that it would be  
nice to have an option for batch enhancement to take a jar file as  
the source, enhance the classes and interfaces found therein, and  
repackage the jar file.

A few items for discussion: the jar file can't be signed. We need  
some way to tell the enhancer about the jar file. Does it make sense  
to have any more than one jar file as input? Does it make sense to  
require that all the metadata be contained in the jar file itself, or  
can metadata be provided as an external resource? Should we have an  
option to create a new jar file as output instead of overwriting the  
input jar file?

Please file a JIRA so we don't lose it...



P.S. Have you installed Apple's latest/gratest Java update?
