Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-308) License files in shaded jar files
Date Fri, 12 May 2017 12:44:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-308?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16008058#comment-16008058

Sean Busbey commented on LEGAL-308:

FWIW, Apache HBase does this by making use of the remote resources plugin. We maintain a support
file that includes licensing information for dependencies that we bundle that don't properly
include things in their jar and/or pom.

> It is a common pattern in many projects to use the Maven shade plugin to build a fat-jar
/ uberjar with dependencies that need to be "relocated" to avoid dependency version conflicts.
> When these dependencies have a License like BSD (that requires inclusion of the license
when redistributing binary versions of the dependency) is it required to put that license
into the shaded jar file as well?
> (my assumption is yes, just wanted to check)
