> Hi devs,
> We are trying to reduce the size of oldcore (been working on it for years
> ;)). We currently have code for XAR import and export in several places in
> oldcore.
> I’d like to define the strategy that we’d like to follow in the future for
> moving this code out.
> Let’s see what we have and what it could become:
> * An existing ‘filter" module outside of oldcore to import/export XAR.
> * An action for exporting a XAR: ExportAction. Future: make it a new URL
> type with components as we’ve done for webjars
> * An action for importing a XAR: ImportAction. Future: make it a new URL
> type with components as we’ve done for webjars
> * A UI at the page level to export a page as a XAR. Future: add an UIXP in
> export_modal.vm and plugin the XAR option as an UIX
> * 2 Uis in the admin to import and export XARx. Future: convert those for
> ConfigurableClass.
> * A legacy  “packaging” plugin with oldcode to import XARs. Future: retire
> it in xwiki-contrib and rewrite the Import/Export Admin UI to use the new
> XAR filter from the filter module.
> * Ancillary classes such as XARImport*/XARExport* events.
> So the question is where to put those?
> Proposal: xwiki-platform-xar
> =====================
> I think what would make the most sense would be to continue the XAR module
> started by Thomas: xwiki-platform-xar.
> It would go like this:
> xwiki-platform-xar
>   |_ xwiki-platform-xar-api (what’s currently in xwiki-platform-xar + Java
> code from oldcore defined above)
>   |_ xwiki-platform-xar-ui (the ui part of the oldcore code above)
>   |_ xwiki-platform-xar-filter (the move from xwiki-platform-filter-stream-
> xar)
> The other option that I like less would be to group everything under the
> filter module but it doesn’t seem good. I’d prefer to keep this module
> generic as much as possible and have “business” modules using it (XAR
> import/export, Confluence import/export, MediaWiki,import/export, etc).
> Thanks
