Subject [jira] Resolved: (TIKA-173) Creating of a binary release that does not bundle all JARS in one big one
Date Sat, 15 Nov 2008 22:49:47 GMT

Jukka Zitting resolved TIKA-173.

    Resolution: Invalid

The main build artifact already is what you're looking for. The "standalone" jar is just an
additional build artifact, targeted for cases where you do want all the dependencies in a
single package. Resolving this issue as Invalid.

The xml-apis library is a dependency of Xerces that's a dependency of NekoHtml. You may want
to open a separate issue for better dealing with that dependency.

> The maven code for building the project works good. For me it is a little bit annoying
that you are not able (as end user who will just download a binary release for inclusion into
his project) to include the JAR and all dependent JARs into your project. The standalone JAR
is good for starting TIKA as GUI or for a simple command line, but when including it into
other projects, where some of the libraries used by TIKA are also used, you have duplicate
class entries in your classpath and depending on the position of the standalone.jar you may
overwrite your local classes by old versions.
> It would be good to have a maven build task/step, that creates a lib directory for the
binary release containing TIKA's JAR file and all dependant libs as separate files. Then a
user is possible to only add the missing libs to his own project and e.g. replace by newer
versions of PDFBox, POI, XALAN, XERCES and do not pollute his classpath.
> By the way: TIKA is a Java 1.5 Project, the use of xml-apis.jar is not good. JAXP is
already included in Java, so i would remove this from the dependencies.
