Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-733) Fat jar option for build, or override for ivy cache location
Date Sat, 23 Feb 2013 21:14:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-733?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13585214#comment-13585214

Joe Stein commented on KAFKA-733:
---------------------------------

I like the idea of assembly but not everyone is going to want/like another dependency so we
adding a dependency for running the server without providing another option.   

In either case something has to get done here KAFKA-760 for how to star the server for different
build options this would be another option

> Need some kind of self-contained mechanism for running kafka to get around the following:
> 1) The location of the source checkout/build is not necessarily the same place where
it will be running (the build location and that user's ivy cache dir) potentially leading
to sync problems (forgetting the ivy dir) or just adding overhead to the deployment process
(additional steps to remember introduces more chances for mistakes)
> 2) The user running the kafka service in a production setting may not even have a real
home directory
> Think something like a 'fat jar' packaging (something that contains all necessary jar
versions in one convenient place) would simplify deployment and reduce the chance for error
(only one lib package to worry about, and it contains everything needed) and would be a little
more production friendly
