Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-3283) Plugins that require dependency resolution in early phases cause dependency resolution issue
Date Tue, 06 May 2008 14:40:22 GMT


Alfie Kirkpatrick commented on MNG-3283:

Note that am pretty sure this issue is seen in m2eclipse which uses maven embedder from the
2.1.x version of maven. This issue may become more apparent as people start using these tools
and probably harder to roll out fixes also...

> What we're seeing is that some multi-project configurations succeed on
> 'mvn package' but fail on 'mvn generate-sources'. They are failing when
> one project in the reactor references another project in the reactor
> which is not installed in the local repo. It seems that the referenced
> project has not quite "made it" into the reactor this early in the phase
> lifecycle. But it does work correctly if you target a later phase at the
> outset which is really confusing.
> The problem only occurs when a plugin binds itself to the
> generate-sources phase and has @requiresDependencyResolution, presumably
> because this is what triggers resolution of the referenced dependency
> too early in the lifecycle, and hence the error.
> We are seeing this problem when trying to run 'mvn eclipse:eclipse'
> because this only executes the generate-sources phase by default and we
> have other mojos which genuinely do generate source, such as java2wsdl.
> A workaround we're using is to run 'mvn process-classes eclipse:eclipse'.
> Attached is a really simple project that exhibits this problem.
