Subject AW: How do I create a customized build?
Date Fri, 20 Mar 2015 07:31:05 GMT
I would provide several jars:
- application-core.jar: contains the application and the interfaces
- application-activemq.jar: contains the interface implementations for
ActiveMQ
- application-hornetq.jar ...


The approach you'll try to achieve (as I understand that) is having a "full
jar" for each impl
- application-activemq.jar: all for ActiveMQ
- application-hornetq.jar: all für HornetQ...


Both strategies would work with pattern.
Something like
  <jar destfile="application-core.jar" > 
    <fileset ... excludes="**/transportX/,**/transportY/...... />
  <jar destfile="application-${transport-strategy}.jar > 
    <fileset ... includes="**/${transport-strategy}/" />
or
  <jar destfile="application-${transport-strategy}.jar > 
    <fileset ... excludes="**/transportX/,**/transportY/...... />
    <fileset ... includes="**/${transport-strategy}/" />


Some more ideas for improvements:
- define a <macrodef> for creating the transport-jars
- if you want to build only for the 'current' transport system, use
<available> for setting the ${transport-strategy}
