Subject [jira] Created: (MNG-3847) Child POMs Not Properly Inheriting Global Property Versions
Date Mon, 17 Nov 2008 12:57:42 GMT
Child POMs Not Properly Inheriting Global Property Versions

                 Key: MNG-3847
             Project: Maven 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Dependencies
    Affects Versions: 2.0.9
         Environment: Mac OS X 
            Reporter: David Haines

We have two large projects, let's call them Project A and B, each with a super pom and numerous
sub-projects.  In the super pom for each project, we define a property called baseVersion
and reference this variable in all applicable artifact versions and dependent artifacts. 
Project A builds without issue.  Project B, however, depends on artifacts from Project A.
 Project B fails to resolve the ${baseVersion} defined in its super pom when referenced as
the version in Project A dependent artifacts (see output below).

Can someone advise how we're meant to define global versions that may be referenced throughout
child pom's?
