    JBossAS 4.0.5-GA dependency libraries version info release n

    Cédric Vidal Newbie

      Hi guys,

      could you please point me to a place where I could find a listing of all JBoss 4.0.5-GA dependencies and especially their versions ?

      More generally, this information would be very helpfull for all JBoss releases. For most jars, neither the filename nor the MANIFEST indicates version info. Most jars have no version info in the filename. I know this is avoided on purpose which is fine with me but the problem is that for most jars even their MANIFEST version headers are forged.

      Sometimes, it is the right original version with an additionnal JBoss information:

      Manifest-Version: 1.0
      Specification-Title: Commons Logging
      Created-By: 1.4.2_09-b05 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)
      Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.6.5
      Implementation-Title: JBoss commons logging patch
      Specification-Vendor: Apache Software Foundation
      Specification-Version: 1.0
      Implementation-Vendor-Id: http://www.jboss.org/
      Implementation-Version: 1.0.5.GA-jboss
      Implementation-Vendor: JBoss Inc.
      Implementation-URL: http://www.jboss.org/
      
      Name: org.apache.commons.logging
      Specification-Version: 1.0
      Specification-Vendor: Apache Software Foundation
      Implementation-Version: 1.0.5.GA-jboss
      Implementation-Vendor: JBoss Inc.


      This is fine with me because you can guess the original version of the dependency, here it seems to be commons-logging-1.0.5, but most of the time, the version header is equal to the version of the JBoss release which leaves me in the dark:

      Manifest-Version: 1.0
      Specification-Title: JBoss
      JarJarStringTransformer: com.tonicsystems.jarjar.GeneratedStringTransf
       ormer
      Created-By: 1.4.2_05-b04 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)
      Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.6.2
      Implementation-Title: JBoss [Zion]
      Specification-Vendor: JBoss (http://www.jboss.org/)
      Specification-Version: 4.0.5.GA
      Implementation-Vendor-Id: http://www.jboss.org/
      Implementation-Version: 4.0.5.GA (build: CVSTag=Branch_4_0 date=200610
       162339)
      Implementation-Vendor: JBoss Inc.
      Implementation-URL: http://www.jboss.org/


      The previous MANIFEST was extracted from 4.0.5.GA/server/ejb3/lib/cglib.jar, this is absolutely not clear in the MANIFEST.

      Thanx for your time,

      Regards,
