spring file name

If you download Spring from a Maven repository or the Spring Source (Maven looking) repository, the jar names begin with Spring such as spring-aop-3.0.7.RELEASE.jar.

If you download from the Spring community download page, the file names look like org.springframework.aop-3.0.7.RELEASE.

Why the difference?

(I noticed this while trying to solve a problem I no longer have, but still curious about the answer)

Ah. the community page are zip files with more than just the jar files. They include docs and examples, in most cases.

Whereas in maven, that is pointing to the jar file itself. I am sure if you take the zip from the community pages, it will contain a jar with the same name as the maven jar files.
