Subject RE: [VOTE] Release of Batik 1.6
Date Sat, 02 Apr 2005 17:38:00 GMT
I agree with Rick - I'm a user, I don't use cvs to build my own jars - maybe
I should. I build an all-batik.jar manually. Then deploy this thru ANT after
JAR signing. I've tried to figure out the minimum number of JARs needed, but
it seemed like I needed them all.

I'd be in favor of a single all-batik.jar in the binary dist, and let the
cvs users build the individual jars.

Thanks,

--BobC

    There is already an 'all-jar' target that builds one large
jar file.  It is true that we don't include this in the binary
release.  This is sort of intentional as a toolkit there are
several large pieces that are independent of each other, so
it really isn't a great idea to just grab everything unless
you are really using most of it (although it is admittedly
convenient).
