Subject [jira] Commented: (ARCHETYPE-200) Should ask input for requiredProperty with defaultValue
Date Fri, 05 Sep 2008 20:49:48 GMT


Grégory Joseph commented on ARCHETYPE-200:

I actually see value for all 3 cases ("fixed value" (ie the current "default"), "input with
default" and "input"), while I find the idea of having to first fill in values, and then *not*
confirm it to be able to change the defaults counter-intuitive.

> It seems that if a requiredProperty is defined with a defaultValue, the generate mojo
does not ask user input. In my opinion it should, just like it does it for the version.
> DefaultArchetypeFactory lines 156-168 seem to be the culprit and I'll attach a patch
that might fix this.
