    Version number in JAR, SAR and EAR names

    David Richmond Newbie

      Is there a reason why version numbers are not included in all JAR, SAR, EAR. ?AR filenames.

      For example you have the following:
      antlr-2.7.6.jar
      bsh-1.3.0.jar
      ehcache-1.1.jar
      quartz-all-1.5.2.jar

      but all other JARs have no version number.

      What about SARs etc. Why not:
      jbossweb-tomcat-5.5.17.sar instead of jbossweb-tomcat55.sar
      ejb3-rc9.deployer instead of ejb3.deployer

      This would make finding out what version of what is installed trivial.

      I also notice that

      ejb3.deployer\META-INF\jboss-service.xml
      defines
      mbean code="org.jboss.ejb3.JarsIgnoredForScanning"
      which lists JARs literally minus version numbers, even though many, when downloaded from Apache et al, have version numbers (e.g. commons-collections.jar). Some entries have version numbers but do not match the versions we have upgraded to. Is there a list somewhere of such definitions (so I can upgrade them)?
