Subject [jira] Updated: (MJAVADOC-171) Modules in multi-module projects are "built" too often
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2008 12:28:57 GMT


Stefan Seidel updated MJAVADOC-171:

    Attachment: 2.2.log

It's not about twice. It's about _all_ modules are built twice for _each_ module. I have removed
the maven-surefire-report-plugin from the parent pom (to show the problem more distinctively)
and when I run clean site the following logs come out with version 2.3 and 2.2 respectively.
Notice the vast increase of
[INFO] Building Unnamed - org.test.forked:...
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] [xmlbeans:xmlbeans {execution: default}]
[INFO] Nothing to generate.
parts from 2.2 to 2.3.

> In a multi-module project, all modules are "built" twice for each module. This leads
to huge performance problems when many modules are in a project. In the attached sample project,
the xmlbeans plugin is executed 27 times for a project with one parent module and two submodules.
18 of these executions can be attributed to the javadoc plugin. With version 2.2, only 3 invocations
(once for each project) are caused by the javadoc plugin.
