Subject [jira] Updated: (MEAR-84) Ability to interpolate filenamemapping using regex.
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2008 20:49:29 GMT


Tuomas Kiviaho updated MEAR-84:

    Attachment: regex.patch

regex.patch contains modified test cases from EAR file name mapping and a customized org.apache.maven.plugin.assembly.utils.AssemblyFormatUtilsTest.
There are references to maven-assembly-plugin which need to be solved. Conversion from AssemblyFormatUtilsTest
as RegexFileNameMappingTest is basically just removal of project and model features that do
not apply to FileNameMapping since only the artifact is available. 

With this patch I was already able to pull a static regex file name mapping... 


...which distinguishes version from base version when snapshots are used because current implementations
are based on ${} and they both lose unique versions because file name is
based on base version.

> I was trying to have an impact how artifact files would be mapped based on previous knowledge
about assembly plugin but noticed that  there's a fundamental difference in implementations.

> Both the 'stardard' and 'full' file name mapping of ear plugin could have been implemented
using org.codehaus.plexus.util.interpolation.RegexBasedInterpolator quite identically to org.apache.maven.plugin.assembly.utils.AssemblyFormatUtils.evaluateFileNameMapping
used in assembly plugin. The class name based pluggability is only available at EAR side.
> Regular expressions of the interpolator have a distinctive pattern separating them from
classes and predefined mappings making it backwards compatible to extend the FileNameMappingFactory
to match regular expressions.
