Subject Re: Binary jars in the source release which are only for testing
Date Sun, 24 Feb 2019 06:46:43 GMT
Or, can you change your build script to download the jar instead of packaging it in the source
release?

    Willem,
    
    This issue of embedded binaries for testing purposes has come up before.
    Examples include network intercepts for testing malware detection or class
    files for a byte code manipulator. The network files can't easily be
    recreated since they were observed in the wild and the class files might
    have been produced by a specific (possibly broken) compiler version that
    isn't widely available.
    
    The key question is whether these binaries are derived from some source
    that could be compiled instead of distributing the binary objects. Failing
    that, can the provenance and justification for the binary object be
    described?
