I'm trying to use tattletale to generate a report for an EAR file. It only worked when I extract the EAR file in a folder. So, here is my question: Tattletale doesn't work with EAR files? Note: I changed the scan property in my jboss-tattletale.properties to scan .ear and it didn't work.
It is a TODO - https://issues.jboss.org/browse/TTALE-11
Basically only .jar like files are supported at the moment. However there is initial support in the datastructures to allow archives like .ear to be scanned.
Let me know if you want to work on this task.
Take a look at the developer guide and check out the code. Then look at the tattletale.analyzers package and the tattletale.core package.
That should give you an idea of the current structure - then post your ideas on how to include support for the enterprise archives. Maybe a dedicated analyzer for each type...
