Subject [jira] Commented: (MRELEASE-252) Support for multi modules project
Date Fri, 20 Mar 2009 08:51:12 GMT


Sylvain MariƩ commented on MRELEASE-252:

Hi Christian,

I am glad to see that other development teams are faced with this issue too. I think that
most of your needs could be covered by a maven-release plugin handling sub-modules correctly
with an XML input file or an interactive behaviour about which sub-modules should be released
(see Moshe's previous comment). 

I have some doubts concerning the need for multiple root modules, though. Is it a need that
you currently have in your projects ? I mean, I think you could just release one subtree of
a root module, then one subtree of another root module, etc. Unless you have tight snapshot
dependencies between projects that are located in separate root modules ?

Best regards,
