Subject [jira] Commented: (ZOOKEEPER-537) The zookeeper jar includes the java source files
Date Thu, 01 Oct 2009 00:19:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-537?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12761052#action_12761052

Mahadev konar commented on ZOOKEEPER-537:

the only reason I feel strongly about this is the following- 

- we have had a lot of production installations for hadoop and zookeeper. I have been invloved
in supporting both of them. One thing I have found while supporting these frameworks/services
is that folks tend to sometime add patches to there specific installations. So, having source
code as an artifact of the release makes it easy for folks like me (developers), wherein we
can take a look at the code sometimes (when all else fails) and find out what this source
code contains or what changes it might have  (different from the real apache release, sometimes
that information gets missing as well).  

are you proposing a seperate source jar as a part of release artifact as well?

>             Fix For: 3.3.0
> This is a problem if you use zookeeper as a dependency in maven because for whatever
reason the maven compiler plugin will pick up the java files in the jar and compile them to
the output directory. From there they will land in the generated jar file for whatever project
happens to depend on zookeeper thus introducing duplicate classes (once in zookeeper.jar,
once in the project's artifact).
