Subject [jira] (MASSEMBLY-343) add symbolic links managment
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2012 18:01:22 GMT


Ahmed El-Madhoun commented on MASSEMBLY-343:

Hi Zuhayr,

Thanks for the response.  I am trying out this patch and I am just having little trouble applying
the patches.  From what you have told me, I am using the following maven plugin and plexus

maven-assembly-plugin 2.2.1
plexus-archiver 1.1
plexus-io 1.0.1

I do get some failures applying the patch, I did not look further into it, but I will later
tonight.  I just want to check that I am using the right versions.

Thanks again and great work so far, any reason why this is not yet officially incorporated?

> i need to buid archives ( tar for example ) with symbolic links
> the plugin build an archive with a file containing the destination of the link, not the
link itself
> => the plugin need an option to know if deferencement of links is needed 
> this is just like -h option of tar
>   -h, --dereference
>               don't dump symlinks; dump the files they point to
> actually, if you do an archive of /lib, for example, many file will be in double with
différent names. extract of archive will not be the exactly the same as the source of the
archive. => this is a test !
