TECH DEBT: reduce size of zanata.war; exclude unused dependencies
Last modified: 2015-01-26 18:28:02 EST
Description of problem:
zanata.war is currently (as of v3.3) about 135MB, when it should probably be less than 50MB. A large reason is the dependency jars in WEB-INF/lib. We should check whether we need all our dependencies, both direct and transitive.
Resources which may help:
 We do use maven-dependency-plugin to check for unused direct dependencies, but the grandfathered dependencies in zanata-war/pom.xml need to be checked and either removed or commented. maven-dependency-plugin does not check for unused transitive dependencies.
Down to 65MB. Good effort guys.
Unfortunately, I don't think it really shrank quite that much. Some of our Jenkins builds enable more GWT permutations than others. I think it's more like 100MB for a full build.
