Subject [jira] Commented: (MASSEMBLY-256) Regression: pom properties are no longer expanded in descriptor.
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2008 20:09:28 GMT


Mark Reynolds commented on MASSEMBLY-256:

Thanks John. I am not concerned with the syntax, and I don't mind modifying my assembly descriptors.
But I would hate to change parameterized paths to hard-coded paths.

Perhaps I misunderstood you. As I said in my comment above, I have tested 


with the staged release candidate and it doesn't work. In your subsequent post, I understood
you to be saying that you have now fixed that for the first 2.2-beta-3-SNAPSHOT (but haven't
deployed it yet), and that the inability to parameterize the <outputDirectory> will
not be fixed for the the 2.2-beta-2 release.

> Attached is a minimal project which demonstrates this issue.
> The pom contains a property:
>     <project>
>         ...
>         <properties>
>             <fileLocation>file/path</fileLocation>
>         </properties>
>     </project>
> The descriptor uses this property in specifying the output directory for a fileSet:
> <assembly>
>     ...
>     <fileSets>
>         <fileSet>
>             <directory>src/main/files</directory>
>             <outputDirectory>${fileLocation}</outputDirectory>
>         </fileSet>
>     </fileSets>
> </assembly>
> In versions 2.1, 2.2-beta-1, and 2.2-SNAPSHOT of the assembly plugin, this property is
expanded so the resulting archive has files in file/path/....
> In the latest 2.2-beta-2-SNAPSHOT, the resulting archive has files in ${fileLocation}/...
