Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Time to create a openjpa-all Jar?
Date Wed, 06 May 2009 17:14:36 GMT

One question/concern.  Does this affect the packaging of OpenJPA[1] or is
this only an additional build-time artifact?  In other words, when I
download the binary distribution will it contain a base jar without
dependencies and/or a separate jar which includes dependencies?  ie. Can a
user still get the base OpenJPA jar without all the bundled dependencies?
I'm assuming so, but though I'd verify.
