[jira] [Commented] (BATIK-1197) Non optional dependencies on jython and rhino added in 1.9.1

Thomas Mortagne commented on BATIK-1197:

bq. The jython/rhino dependencies have been there a long time

Not sure what you mean exactly. You did not ended up with Jython with 1.9 or previous versions. Sure it was possible to use Jython if you added the JAR yourself as indicated on https://xmlgraphics.apache.org/batik/install.html but it was not a mandatory dependency from Maven point of view.

There is nothing about Jython or Rhino in https://www.mail-archive.com/batik-users@.../msg10017.html so I don't understand where exactly "as suggested" come from.

It's not all or nothing, since those dependencies can be used it sure make sens to declare them as dependencies but they could be optional dependencies. Jython JAR is really not a details (it's big and wrongly embed lots of other libraries) especially when it's used for pretty edge cases when you are a FOP user. Excluding a dependency is always a hack and there is nothing telling you that batik-script is and will continue to work without it.

bq. Excluding jython seems to work

Yes but I'm trying to understand why this dependency suddenly became non optional and this upgrade is not critical for me right now. Also the fact that there is no 1.9.1 version in Jira or http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/xmlgraphics/batik/tags/ did not really reassured me on the quality of this release so I wanted to make all that really was intended and not a mistake. Adding such big dependencies in a minor version is quite weird.

> Note: can't find the 1.9.1 version so I did not set it in "Affects Version/s".
> Looks like a big change for a minor version. Is this really expected ?
> Maybe 1.9.1 was release by mistake ? I can only see it in Maven central but can't find a version here on any corresponding tag in http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/xmlgraphics/batik/tags/
