Picard's CollectMultipleMetrics in Queue v3.4 and v3.5

brisk022brisk022 University of ZurichMember

Greetings,

Some of the picard's collect (e.g. CollectMultipleMetrics, CollectInsertSizeMetrics) commands load R script resources. Those resources were present in Queue <= v3.3-0 but they are absent from the subsequent versions.
$ jar tf 3.3-0/Queue.jar | grep "picard.*R$" picard/analysis/baseDistributionByCycle.R picard/analysis/gcBias.R picard/analysis/meanQualityByCycle.R picard/analysis/rnaSeqCoverage.R picard/analysis/qualityScoreDistribution.R picard/analysis/insertSizeHistogram.R $ jar tf 3.4-0/Queue.jar | grep "picard.*R$" $ jar tf 3.5-0/Queue.jar | grep "picard.*R$" $
Without those resources, CollectMultipleMetrics throws something similar to java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Script [picard/analysis/qualityScoreDistribution.R] not found in classpath depending on which commands it hits first. I thought I would be able to overcome that by adding picard.jar to CLASSPATH but it did not help. I had to add them to Queue.jar in order to make it work.

It would be nice to have those resources back in the distributed Queue.jar.

Thanks!

Roman

    It looks like the June issue was something different; unfortunately it's not clear what's going wrong and we don't have the resources to address this at this time. If someone external figures it out and submits a patch we're happy to look at it of course. Sorry to disappoint!

    Thanks for looking into that, Geraldine. Unfortunately, I don't have much experience with Maven, so I wouldn't be of much help.

    PS Do you give badges to people for reporting the most obscure issues? ;)
