Subject [PROPOSAL] Remove build-webapps-precompile target from dist.xml of TC 6, TC 7. Or enable and fix it?
Date Fri, 03 Jul 2009 00:06:33 GMT
The dist.xml file of tc6.0.x and of trunk contains a target named

It performs precompilation of two web apps:
ROOT and examples.

This target is not called during release process, and actually it does
not work as is: it references non-existent libraries and non-existent
subdirectories (like /common/lib, /server/lib).

I've prepared a patch to enable this target, but then I thought: what
is the benefit from enabling this feature?

Regarding the root application:
in trunk it does not have the index.jsp, but only index.html,  so
precompilation makes sense for tc6.0 only.

Does anyone have good points in favor of precompiling those two apps?

Otherwise I'll propose removal of that "build-webapps-precompile"
target from dist.xml of 6.0 and trunk.

Or I can enable precompilation of ROOT app in 6.0 and remove this
target from trunk, thus skipping the examples.

(If anyone is interested, I've put the current versions of my patches
that enable that target here:
The patch for tc6 is incomplete: compiled ROOT/index.jsp is not
included into the distributives. For trunk that does not matter)

Best regards,
Konstantin Kolinko
