Subject [jira] Closed: (MNG-3259) Regression: Maven drops dependencies in multi-module build
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2008 21:13:29 GMT


John Casey closed MNG-3259.

    Resolution: Fixed

I just tested this on OS X and WinXP, using maven 2.0.7, 2.0.8, and 2.0.9-SNAPSHOT from revId:
630321. All of my tests used JDK 1.4. 

In the cases of 2.0.8 and 2.0.9-SNAPSHOT on OS X, it didn't fail.

In the cases of 2.0.7 and 2.0.8 on WinXP, it failed.

In the case of 2.0.9-SNAPSHOT on WinXP, it didn't fail.

I'm not sure, but it looks like it has been fixed inadvertently...not a great thing to say,
but there you go. I'd welcome some more eyes on this issue, to see if you can prove me wrong/crazy/something.

I built a distro from that revision, and parked it here:

Please reopen this issue if you can't replicate my success.

> Under some circumstances Maven "forgets" about test dependencies in multi-module builds.
The affected module can be build only if the build is started from its local project directory.
If the build is run from a parent directory, the test fails because of missing classes. This
issue applies to M207 and recent M208-RC1, the project can be build without problems with
M205 (M206 is completely bogus). The problem was for us already the show stopper for M207
and I thought with some of the now resolved issues it has been gone, but I was wrong. I did
not report it earlier, because I was never able to reproduce the problem with a minimal build
... until now and it took me about 3 days to create a demonstrating multi module project.
