Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-733) Fat jar option for build, or override for ivy cache location
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2013 18:34:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-733?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13586101#comment-13586101

Dave DeMaagd commented on KAFKA-733:

KAFKA-733-2.patch (attached in a moment) removes the 'additional' dependency - com.eed3si9n/sbt-assembly
is already there (the second instance is removed in the patch), so in effect all the patch
is doing is configuring the existing dep. 

As for the zk client libs - I will have to defer to someone else on the right handling of
it (someone with more familiarity with the code level differences between them).

> 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
