Thanks and FindJar question / feature

Geoff Clitheroe Newbie

Thanks for Tattletale! I have been retroffiting Ivy files to several projects and repacking some WARs to have all their dependent jars in WEB-INF/lib, this would have been next to impossible without Tattletale. Very nice work.

Once I have a report from Tattletale I frequently use FindJar (http://www.findjar.com/) to locate the jar that provides missing classes.

Is there any other way to do this e.g., other project or webservice?

And, are there any plans to add a report feature like this to Tattletale? e.g.,

com.missing.class - could be provided by 'list of jars' (possibly with maven or ibilio links).

Thanks again, you really made a miserable job possible.

Cheers,
Geoff

    Not to my knowledge.

    It is a massive job to create profiles - which Tattletale calls this type of information - for all JARs.

    We do plan to include profiles for all major APIs like Java Enterprise Edition, Seam, WebBeans and Spring.

    An example is the current SunJDK5 profile located in:
    org.jboss.tattletale.reporting.SunJava5
    


    Of course you are more than welcome to head up the work to start indexing all JARs. First we need a tool that can easy extract the information and generate the needed classes and files for Tattletale.

    You are welcome - I'm happy that you found Tattletale useful. Remember to share your experience with others :)

    I'd be happy to help - I have a couple of ideas to try. I'll get in touch directly for now.
