Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-840) Alternate approach to local private repo for mvn build
Date Fri, 13 Jun 2008 08:36:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-840?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12604772#action_12604772

David Jencks commented on JAMES-840:

Bernd.... I am well aware that many james committers dislike maven almost as much as I dislike
ant, but the maven build does work.  I am suggesting something that I think is a slight simplification
of it.

Stefano... I apologize for confusing the issue.  After some struggles I thought that my proxy/mirror
settings were causing problems so I turned them off, but by that time I had most of this suggestion
implemented.  I think but haven't checked that the build would work fine as is if I started
with my proxy/mirror settings turned off.

I guess there are 3 parts here:
1. merging the spring-deployment stage repo into the main stage repo.  I would think you would
want to do this anyway so all the dependencies are in one place.
2. turning the stage dir into a maven project whose only function is to install the dependencies
in the stage repo into the local maven repo.  I think this makes the build clearer.  Another
effect is that you only have to turn off your proxy/mirror settings while building the stage
module, the rest of the build works with them on.
3. possibly separating the "available from maven central repo" dependencies into a separate
profile in the stage pom.  I think this would help in tracking which dependencies are easiliy
available and which you have built yourself or dug out of some undocumented location.

This is not a giant improvement in any sense, but to me it seems slightly clearer what is
going on with the repos and it might be slightly more maintainable.  I certainly won't mind
if you keep the build the way it is now, although I do think adding the 2 dependencies to
the root dependency management section would be a good idea. (there might be more that I didn't

> The mvn build did not work for me, perhaps because of some maven proxy settings.  However
I think the current use of local repositories is weird and suggest an alternate approach,
see attachment.
> Basically the idea is to turn stage into a project that installs all required jars from
the stage private local repo to the local maven repo.
> I would suggest having two sets of dependencies: in the regular dependencies include
only those jars that are not available elsewhere, and in a profile include also those jars
that are available from maven central.  This will clarify which jars you are using from non-publically-available
sources or builds.
> In addition, the spring integration has a separate stage.  I would recommend moving the
contents to the main stage repo with (I think)
> svn mv spring-deployment/stage/ stage
> I don't know if this would break the ant build.
> At this point the root pom is missing the javax.jcr:jcr:1.0:jar and avalon-phoenix:avalon-phoenix-client:4.2-SNAPSHOT:jar
dependencies in the dependency management section
