Currently just binaries jars get published on Maven Central (see http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/kafka/kafka_2.10/0.8.1/ ). Please also publish sources and javadoc jars.
Drop Scala 2.8.x support
Gradle build for Kafka
0.8.1.1 release candidate
Kafka sources and javadoc missing from Maven central
source jar is empty
Assigned issue to packaging component
This bug is caused by new and incomplete migration to gradle build, introduced in 0.8.1 through KAFKA-1171.
Before this 0.8.0 had sources and javadoc jars published (see here)
Will upload a patch today.
Created reviewboard https://reviews.apache.org/r/20376/
against branch origin/0.8.1
The above patch should apply to trunk as well, but I will rebase if necessary. The docsJar_2_8_2 task fails for some reason, but all the other tasks pass.
./gradlew srcJar worked great
however the docsJar_2_8_2 error is stopping ./gradlew releaseTarGzAll from working trying to get a stacktrace out of it
i ran with stacktrace, debug and info https://gist.github.com/joestein/10803377#file-kafka-1362-L296 googled around a bit looks like a bug in 2.8.1 scaladoc itself https://issues.scala-lang.org/browse/SI-4284 but fixed in 2.9.0 not sure yet if there is a workaround or what exactly in the code is causing this that we can change to subvert it.
Consider dropping Scala 2.8.x support. I've just created a separate request for that (see KAFKA-1399)
Joe Stein I think I ran across a similar bug report earlier, but couldn't explain why that would affect the 2.8.2 scaladoc build.
We could just get rid of 2_8_2. We would still have 2_8_0
2.8.0 is so much older and worse (arguably) and not used if we drop support for 2.8.2 we might as well do it for 2.8.0, we should have some consensus to-do that though IMHO it falls under "release plan" and would require a Lazy majority to pass.
We could, but it's just that there are a couple of users on 2.8 still - including LinkedIn. Since only the docs jar task is failing, I thought it would be sufficient to just remove 2.8.2 from docsJarAll.
Committed to both 0.8.1 and trunk
Filed KAFKA-1406 to address the warnings when generating javadocs/scaladocs.
kafka_2.10-0.8.1.1-sources.jar in maven central ist empty (see http://search.maven.org/#artifactdetails%7Corg.apache.kafka%7Ckafka_2.10%7C0.8.1.1%7Cjar). Is this intentional?
Echoing the comment about the sources jar being empty. Can we get a resolution on this please? Joel Koshy?
This issue should be reopened. The sources jar for 0.8.1.1 on Maven Central is empty.
The maven issue should be fixed in kafka-1502.
