#297 Debugging information still missing from maven artifacts

Adar Dembo

I looked at https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1960355&group_id=23316&atid=378134 before filing this bug.

The class files in the 2.3.1 maven artifact appear to be missing all debugging information, making debugging that much more challenging. The aforementioned bug report mentioned a separate jar for debug info but I can't find it. I did find an older hsqldb-j5 jar, but it too is missing debugging information.

    Ahh, I was expecting the debug artifact to be named differently from the regular hsqldb artifact.

    It is named differently:

    Any chance you would be willing to add debug information to the default artifact? http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1872491/why-are-some-java-libraries-compiled-without-debugging-information suggests that it shouldn't add overhead.

    I'm asking because even though I can use a <classifier/> tag to tell maven about the -jdk6debug artifact, I can't find a way to customize maven-eclipse-plugin so that it'll look for -sources and -javadoc for the sources/javadoc artifacts. As-is it's looking for artifacts with names like -jdk6debug-sources and -jd6debug-javadoc.
