Subject [jira] [Commented] (OPENJPA-1459) Remove heavy documentation objects from the binary distribution
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2013 15:59:52 GMT


Kevin Sutter commented on OPENJPA-1459:

Mike, Thanks for looking into this JIRA.  I just re-built with your changes and I see the
new file ( getting created and it looks to be minus the docs and the examples.
 So, that's good.  But, the file seems to be missing the docs.  This file still
contains the examples directory, but the docs are missing.

I thought the direction was to leave the file as is (complete with docs and examples)
and introduce a new file called that would be slimmed down.  So, I looked
back and noticed that this non-docs version of the was introduced sometime before
we cut the 2.2.0 release.  The 2.1.0 release did contain the docs in the  Did
we (Mike) just do a bunch of work for no reason?  :-)

> Per Kevin's comment in the OpenJPA 1.2.2 release vote [1] our binary distribution contains
a large amount of documentation files (roughly 90% of the archive is docs). Kevin posed the
question of whether other Apache projects include docs in their distributions.
> So I took a random (and small) sampling : 
> * HTTPServer only delivers binaries for Windows as a .msi file - I'm not sure whether
the docs are included there or not. 
> * Ant 1.8.0-RC1 includes documentation in the binary distribution.
> * Derby includes documentation in the binary distribution
> * OpenEJB 3.1.2 does not include documentation in the binary distribution
> The results don't show a clear trend (maybe a larger sample size would reveal one), but
it looks like we have leeway here to include or omit documentation in our releases. 
> Also FWIW OpenEJB and Derby's binary distributions are roughly the same size as OpenJPA
1.2.2 (around 18MB), Ant is a bit smaller (around 7 MB). 
> Removing all docs would put the size around 5.8 MB, removing just the javadoc (the larger
portion of documentation) puts the size around 11 MB.
