sbt-onejar: Package your project using One-JAR™*

sbt-onejar is a simple-build-tool plugin for building a single executable JAR containing all your code and dependencies as nested JARs.

Currently One-JAR version 0.9.7 is used. This is included with the plugin, and need not be separately downloaded.

Requirements

Requires SBT 0.12.x, or 0.13.x

Users of SBT 0.7.x are directed to the v0.2.

Currently, you need to include the setting exportJars := true if you have a multi-project build. (Example)

Obtaining

Depend on the plugin by editing project/plugins.sbt:

addSbtPlugin("org.scala-sbt.plugins" % "sbt-onejar" % "0.8")

Introduce Settings

Include the settings from com.github.retronym.SbtOneJar.oneJarSettings.

You can configure mainClass in oneJar := Some("com.acme.Woozler"). It defaults to mainClass in run in Compile.

Examples

Usage

run one-jar task to generate, erm, one JAR. Run it with java -jar <jarname>.

What's in the JAR?

As an example of the structure, here is the contents of scalaz-example_2.8.1-5.1-SNAPSHOT-onejar.jar, a package built from the Scalaz examples module.

How does it compare to XXX?

There are other ways to package your application. I based this plugin on Coda Hale's sbt-assembly which builds an über-JAR, directly containing all classes and resources merged together. This approach must be used carefully when there are resources with the same name across multiple JARs.

Kris Nuttycombe's sbt-proguard-plugin also creates an über-JAR, with the possibility to obfuscate and shrink. This is popular for targeting Android. Proguard is a powerful tool, and it takes some effort to configure it correctly.

One-JAR employs some classloader magic to sidestep the über-JAR limitations. It does support classpath scanning, as used in Spring and Hibernate, although there seems to be a performance penalty for this. But if your application, or its libraries, also relies on classloader trickery, you might run into some problems. Caveat Emptor.

Looking for something else? One of these might suit: WebStart, Exe4J, jsmooth, izpack.
