Subject [jira] Created: (MNGECLIPSE-179) Use eclipse artifact resolver for forked maven builds
Date Wed, 16 Aug 2006 14:36:48 GMT
Use eclipse artifact resolver for forked maven builds

                 Key: MNGECLIPSE-179
             Project: Maven 2.x Extension for Eclipse
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Scott Cytacki
         Assigned To: Eugene Kuleshov
            Priority: Minor

We should examine if the eclipse artifact resolver, which was created to address this issue:
Should be used in forked maven builds.   This would mean that artifacts would not need to
be installed into the local repository, before they could be used by forked maven builds.

Doing this though, might have some complicated consequences.   For example it might be possible
to install a project without installing a dependency.  How does the reactor handle this: if
sub project A depends on subproject B can A be installed without installing B?

That seems like a good way to think of this: the Eclipse workspace is like a parent project
that has sub projects one for each eclipse project.  Just like in a traditional multi-project,
 those sub projects can reference dependencies that are not installed.
