Subject [jira] Commented: (ARCHETYPE-107) maven archetype missing dependency versions breaks archetype:create
Date Mon, 14 Jan 2008 15:26:57 GMT


Dave Minter commented on ARCHETYPE-107:

Still an issue as of Maven versions 2.0.7 and 2.0.8.

Is there some obvious work-around aside from temporarily renaming the top level pom, hacking
the generated poms to refer to the parent, and putting the parent back again?

As I understand this is a result of a bad pom in the archives. Is there a corrected pom that
I could put into my local respository? (Hacking the pom directory to add an explicit version
to the maven-archetype-model artifact didn't fix the problem).

It seems strange that this isn't a problem for more people if there isn't a simple work-around...?

> When I try to invoke the "create" goal in the 2.0.7 version of maven, I receive the following
error message when invoked from a directory with an existing pom.xml:
> Project ID: org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin
> POM Location: Artifact [org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:pom:1.0-SNAPSHOT]
> Validation Messages:
>     [0]  'dependencies.dependency.version' is missing for org.apache.maven.archetype:maven-archetype-creator
> Reason: Failed to validate POM for project org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin
at Artifact [org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:pom:1.0-SNAPSHOT]
> The currently staged version of the maven-archetype-creator dependency contains a missing
version reference:
> <dependency>
> <groupId>org.apache.maven.archetype</groupId>
> <artifactId>maven-archetype-model</artifactId>
> </dependency>
> [source:]
> This effectively breaks the archetype:create goal.
