Subject [jira] Created: (MSITE-261) Local Parent POM not found if <relativePath> specifies a directory
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2007 16:20:52 GMT
Local Parent POM not found if <relativePath> specifies a directory

                 Key: MSITE-261
             Project: Maven 2.x Site Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: multi module
    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta-5
         Environment: Maven 2.0.7, JDK 1.5.0_12, WinXP SP2
            Reporter: Benjamin Bentmann
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: site-parent-pom.patch

The Maven core allows to specify a directory for the <relativePath> element in a module
POM to locate the parent POM, e.g.{code:xml}<parent>
</parent>{code}will properly find the parent POM in "../parent/pom.xml". However, the
Site plugin does not follow this lookup strategy:{code}
[INFO] [site:site]
[INFO] Unable to load parent project from a relative path: Could not find the model file '[SNIP]\..\parent'.
for project unknown
[INFO] Parent project loaded from repository.{code}
This log output is actually from 2.0-beta-6-SNAPSHOT, 2.0-beta-5 outputs a different message
but fails, too.

The attached patch fixes this although I wonder whether this functionality is not already
included somewhere in the Maven core (where is belongs IMHO).
