Subject [jira] [Updated] (AXIS-2453) Reduce size of archive files
Date Sun, 01 Jan 2012 15:25:31 GMT


Andreas Veithen updated AXIS-2453:

    Fix Version/s: 1.4.1
> Reduce size of archive files
> ----------------------------
>                 Key: AXIS-2453
>                 URL:
>             Project: Axis
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 1.3
>            Reporter: Sebb
>             Fix For: 1.4.1
> The zip files for the binary and source releases of Axis 1.3 are 11MB and 18MB, which
is rather large - in particular the source zip.
> The source archive seems to include pretty well everything in the binary archive, as
well as the source itself.
> Is this really necessary? It contains a lot of class files, which surely aren't needed
in the source archive - indeed nor are the axis jars.
> Both archives have two copies of all the jars, one in lib/, and the other under webapps/
- would it not be possible to have just the one copy?
> Similarly for the samples - there are two copies of the class files, one under samples/,
and the other under webapps/
> May I suggest that all class files and jars are removed from the source archive?
> This would reduce the size to about 9MB. Removing the Javadoc as well would bring it
down to a reasonable 4MB.
> Removing the duplicate class and jar files from the binary archive would bring it down
to about 9MB; it could be made a bit smaller by removing the sample directories.
> It might be worth considering releasing the Javadoc as a separate archive, as it is about
5MB on its own.
