Subject [jira] Commented: (MECLIPSE-377) eclipse:eclipse -DdownloadSources=true shouldn't attempt download more than once in a multi-project
Date Fri, 28 Nov 2008 12:08:19 GMT


Julien Renaut commented on MECLIPSE-377:

I think both ways have their benefits.

Common users probably don't want to know about the location of the cache, they just want it
to work and eventually resetting it using the new mojo you're proposing in MECLIPSE-504.

Still, i've often edited the cache myself to fix wrong entries due to incorrectly generated
artifacts (without sources when they were supposed to have sources). Having it's location
optionally configurable is just for ease of use. 

However, I agree it will work just the same way if you force it to be at the root of local

Having ACID properties on the file and configurable location would allow the cache to be stored
on a network location. For large teams this could be helpful but probably not enough to justify
the effort.

> If you run "mvn eclipse:eclipse -DdownloadSources=true" it attempts to download source
jars for all projects, even when it has tried (and failed) to download the jars in earlier
projects.  This slows down the goal a lot on slow network connections.
