Subject [jira] Commented: (MRM-459) prune the distributed dependencies
Date Sat, 13 Oct 2007 23:42:52 GMT


Brett Porter commented on MRM-459:

we should also be able to remove more:
- was xml-apis removed as well as xerces?
- only velocity is needed, not velocity-dep (as long as we have all the deps included in velocity-dep,
which I think we do)
- we should be smarter about logging. Don't need clogging and clogging-api, don't need slf4j
simple. I think the rest are right since we need both apis :(
- do we really need jtidy?
- can we do anything about the JCA lib? is there one from Geronimo?
- where are the Maven libs still used?

> a large number of unneeded dependencies are distributed with Archiva (or if they are
needed, we might want to review why).

log4j, xerces, jtidy, jdom, dom4j, commons-jxpath, jaxen, jta (we have geronimo-jat already),
classworlds (we have plexus-classworlds already), backport (we require JDK 5, no need for
> I'm also uncertain if all the maven libraries are still needed.
