Operating System: All
Those jars in the Maven repository should have their corresponding source jar
files to assist developers.
Java EE 6 API in the Maven repository has an incorrect method.
To assist developers to do what?
The corresponding JARs are stripped (no bytecode for methods) and are meant to
be used only for compilation. IDEs like NB or Eclipse bundle a zip for the javadoc.
What other use case do you need to get the src? Debugging? In this case, these
jars are not used for execution so also not for debugging. In the case of
debugging, I think there is a complete GF src somewhere to step into the real
code you execute from the real non stripped gf jars.
Romain, that is great news! Thanks!
It would be even better if it was done for Java EE 6 as well, but as EE 7 is the way forward anyway that's good enough for me.
If it isn't done for EE 6 though, shouldn't this issue be either closed or renamed?
Reassigning to Romain since Ludo is no longer on the project.
This has massively ruined my day. I'm moving from Glassfish and my JSF tutorial isn't printed out the bean value to the view. I just wanted to debug the FaceServlet init method to make sure it was being loaded. Normally a 10 second job but looks like it's going to be another few hours down the pan.
What's the status of this now that Java EE 7 has been released?
Any chances that the source code will ever be released on the java maven repository?
