Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6438) Improve clean-jars when dealing with symbolic links.
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2015 16:25:59 GMT


Mark Miller commented on LUCENE-6438:

So given that clean-jars is currently weak when dealing with the sym links option and theoretically
we should not need it once SOLR-7429 is resolved, are there any objections to removing it?

> Ever since I started seeing jars in the lib folders use symbolic links on linux I've
run into jar problems when working with an old checkout or switching branches on a git checkout.
You would normally expect ant clean-jars to help, but it didn't and led to some headaches
and random bs.
> Turns out, clean-jars is not properly removing all symbolic links for me. I've seen two
cases - symbolic links to jars that are not removed and broken symbolic links to jars.
> I can get rid of the symbolic links with the following:
> {code}
>   <target name="clean-jars" description="Remove all JAR files from lib folders in
the checkout">
>     <delete failonerror="true" removeNotFollowedSymlinks="true">
>       <fileset dir="." followsymlinks="false">
> {code}
> But that doesn't work with the broken links.
> I guess you can remove those with the Ant Symlink task, but it seems only specifically
one at a time which is not that useful.
