VS: [FOSSology] Help a newbie

Fossology agent doing the unpacking will unpack zip-packages and jar-packages, even if they are nested.

 

You likely want to run source code files through Fossology, though, because many build systems remove texts that would be interesting for license analysis purposes. In java, you should look at uploading .java-files and not .class-files.

Aihe: [FOSSology] Help a newbie

 

I am trying to run software packages/components through fossology. If i zip the package folder (with the jar file inside), will this successfully test all of the classes inside?
