Subject [jira] Created: (MSITE-177) Docs are not updated if only site.xml changed
Date Tue, 22 Aug 2006 07:29:50 GMT
Docs are not updated if only site.xml changed

                 Key: MSITE-177
             Project: Maven 2.x Site Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta-5
            Reporter: Jörg Hohwiller

If I update site.xml (e.g. add new menu-items) and regenerate my existing site, the index
gets updated but other existing pages are not rebuild and therefore show the menus in the
state before the site.xml has changed (so new menus are missing). This causes a confusing
site where menus appear and disappear while surfing.

I only use xdos (and they are in a subfolder) so I can not tell if this happens with apt as
well. I reproduced the problem with "mvn site" and "mvn site:stage".
As a workaround I can delete the old site before building. Since I stage the site directly
to the final destination on the local machine where it is served this is not very suitable
because then the site is broken until it is completely rebuild.
If you consider to fix this issue please beware that site.xml can inherit stuff in multiproject
So it is unclear if the optimization to only re-generate if something has changed makes sense
at all. It might be quite complicated to determine this - the question is how much time is
saved by this at all.
