Subject [jira] Commented: (MGROOVY-1) Support mojo plugin.xml generation for Groovy mojos
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2007 01:15:34 GMT


Matt Brozowski commented on MGROOVY-1:

Could it be that annotation support in groovy would only be a compile time annotations that
could be used to create a plugin.xml rather than a runtime annotation?  This would make it
possible to compile the groovy plugin with Java5 be able to run in 1.4

Just an idea.

> Right now there isn't really a good way to generate a plugin.xml for a Mojo implemented
in Groovy.
> There is the {{javalike-maven-plugin-tools}} module which kinda works, though requires
some icky ";" tokens to get qDox to properly parse out javadocs for parameters.  I'm not sure
that this module handles annotations on super-classes either.
> I've hacked up an extractor.groovy a while ago (MNG-1664) which uses regex, but that
doesn't handle super-classes either.
> Really need a nice way to parse regular groovy (w/o needing ";') to generate a plugin.xml.
