Mark Struberg commented on OPENJPA-1934:
----------------------------------------

Txs 4 the input!
There are a few thematic areas which we need to discuss

1.)
> Would suggest that any tool that has a tight version dependency on the openjpa artifacts,
> should go into the main build instead if in the tools subproject..... 

I think this is true and I honestly don't see any project which is (on a long term) _not_
depending on the openjpa version.
I originally also thought that the openjpa-maven-plugin can be made independent of the openjpa
version. But then you cannot pickup new OpenJPA features in your tool!

So I'd suggest that the openjpa-tools normally also share the release cycle of the openjpa
project. Of course, it is _always_ possible to just release a submodule on it's own! For example,
it would easily be possible to _backport_ the openjpa-maven-plugin (or any other new tool)
to the 2.1.0 branch and release only the maven plugin as 2.1.0-bp-1.

2.) should the openjpa-tools be packaged into openjpa-all?
That depends on how you see this package. Currently it is a jar, so I'd interpret this should
only contain the classes needed for the runtime execution. So this should imo _not_ include
the various openjpa-tools.

If openjpa-all would be a binary distribution package, then the tools definitely belong there
too. But in this case it should not be a jar but rather a zip + tar.gz!
