Subject [jira] [Commented] (OPENJPA-1459) Remove heavy documentation objects from the binary distribution
Date Thu, 29 Aug 2013 14:57:52 GMT


Kevin Sutter commented on OPENJPA-1459:

Of course, it could...  :-)  DOH!  I was comparing apples to oranges.  Sorry about that! 
Your changes look good.  Sorry for the confusion.

> 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.
