Subject [jira] Created: (MINVOKER-36) Support for non-project based Maven invocations
Date Tue, 06 May 2008 21:30:22 GMT
Support for non-project based Maven invocations

                 Key: MINVOKER-36
             Project: Maven 2.x Invoker Plugin
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 1.1
            Reporter: Benjamin Bentmann

Theoretically, creating an IT for MPLUGIN-92 (requires project) is easy: Find yourself a directory
without a POM, invoke the plugin's help goal and verify Maven doesn't fail.

Unfortunately, the Invoker Plugin is currently quite POM-centric. For the future, I could
imagine a slightly extended include/exclude concept: Allow the patterns to select directories,
too, rather than only files. For an included directory, use a {{pom.xml}} if it exists and
invoke Maven POM-less if it doesn't, just like if the Invoker Plugin was some user running
Maven on a command prompt.
