Subject [jira] Commented: (MAVENUPLOAD-1651) junit 4.4
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2007 15:12:13 GMT


Mauro Talevi commented on MAVENUPLOAD-1651:

I'm actually advocating the exact opposite:  for me bundling dependency classes in the junit
jar is a very bad decision.  IMO it motivated primarily by the perceived "simplicity" of having
a single jar rather than two or more.  In fact, it is a recipe for a classloader quagmire
when hamcrest jars are also present in the classpath. 

I've argued this on the junit list and I've had no reply.    So - respectful of other projects
decisions, even when not in agreement with them - I think the least common denominator is
to upload *both* a junit artifact - as released by the project - and a junit-dep which has
the hamcrest 1.1 dependency as a transitive dependency.  Then people will be free to choose
what they want to use.
