Subject [jira] Commented: (SUREFIRE-451) ManifestJarWriter should use java.util.jar.Manifest
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2008 22:09:28 GMT


Benjamin Bentmann commented on SUREFIRE-451:

bq. so maybe there was a good reason for it...?
The old story, where is documentation when one needs it ;-) ?

bq. java.util.jar.Manifest creates a manifest with TWO final newlines
Which is in conformance with the [Manifiest Specification|]
given the case, that the manifest contains no "individual-sections".

etc.  This code was copied from plexus-archiver when we stopped depending on plexus-archiver.
> But AFAIK there's no reason to do that by hand; java.util.jar.Manifest can take care
of all of that for us.  Still, it's creepy that they did all of that work, so maybe there
was a good reason for it...?
