Clean up jars
To reduce the size of the war files, we might clean/reorganize some jar files.
I'm currently removing/moving some jars from the /lib folder.
Removed from lib folder:
asm-attrs.jar junit-4.7.jar -> moved to /lib-test replacing older junit urlrewrite.jar xercesImpl.jar kamikaze-3.0.6.jar (updated bobo-browse removes this dependency) javaee.jar -> replaced with javax-servlet.jar backport-util-concurrent.jar
Minified jars (only containing classes which are used by us or some jar, done with tool autojar) are:
fastutil-minified-6.4.4.jar (fastutil-6.4.2-shrinked.jar previously) icu4j-3_8-jasypt.jar (icu4j-3_8.jar previously) jasypt-minified-1.9.0.jar (jasypt-1.9.0.jar previously)
I've made an analysis with jaranalyze which I use to find unused jar libs: view webdslJarAnalyze.xml

strategoxt.jaris the largest one, counting 13114 classes and taking about 15MB
I'm not sure yet if strategoxt.jar is needed for deployed web applications. If not, we need to move this jar. Edit: Tested it on some apps by removing the jar, they still work fine.
The strategoxt.jar is only needed when you are invoking JSGLR or Stratego from WebDSL, this usage is demonstrated in the following test file: https://svn.strategoxt.org/repos/WebDSL/webdsls/trunk/test/succeed/stratego/strategocalls.app. Researchr uses it for Bibtex parsing and normalization.
Strategoxt.jar is now excluded to be copied to the libfolder of the deployed app. This may be problematic for apps that use stratego code from within their apps.
The stratego functionality will become a plugin like elib (with twitter bootstrap templates). This way, we can leave out the large strategoxt.jar by default.
