Subject [jira] Commented: (MSITE-377) empty page for xdoc generated
Date Sun, 01 Mar 2009 15:52:12 GMT


Dennis Lundberg commented on MSITE-377:

I agree that the NPE isn't very helpful.

You have incorrect syntax for the macro element in your xdoc files. See the Macros Guide at

    <macro name="toc" fromDepth="0">
    <macro name="toc">
      <param name="fromDepth" value="0"/>
worked for me using 2.0-beta-7.

>                 Key: MSITE-377
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Site Plugin
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta-7, 2.1
>            Reporter: Jörg Hohwiller
> In my project I have two xdoc files that both use the toc-macro invented with DOXIA-40.
> When I generate the site of my project with "mvn site", I get an entirely empty page
for one of these xdoc files (setup-devel.xml),
> while when I do "mvn site:stage" the same happens about the other xdoc file (conventions.xml).

> This appears to me like a very odd bug.
> If it may help, you can use my project to reproduce this:
> If you run "mvn -N site" (you might only checkout src and pom.xml from trunk) 
> you get the described problem with empty setup-devel.html.
> Staging the site might be a little fiddly though...
> My history about this:
> For my project I am struggeling with maven-site-plugin since years.
> After 2.0-beta-5 was released I was quite happy since I was able to stage the entire
site of my complex multi-module-project.
> However later versions invented new features like an autogenerated table-of-contents
(DOXIA-40) that I started to use.
> Then I figured out that beta-6 and beta-7 were very buggy about creating links to sub-modules
> Now all my hope is up to beta-8 that I am awaiting, where these bugs are fixed. But I
end up with this new problem.
