Benjamin Bentmann updated MNG-4456:
-----------------------------------

    Affects Version/s: 2.2.1

> Deprecate fully qualified pathnames in system path
> --------------------------------------------------
>
>                 Key: MNG-4456
>                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-4456
>             Project: Maven 2
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 2.2.1
>         Environment: Any.
>            Reporter: Jim Showalter
>            Priority: Minor
>
> You could output a deprecation warning whenever a fully qualified path is specified,
but not warn if the path starts with a variable.
> For example, this would generate no warning:
>     <dependency>
>        <groupId>com.sun</groupId>
>        <artifactId>tools</artifactId>
>        <version>1.6.0</version>
>        <scope>system</scope>
>        <systemPath>${java.home}/../lib/tools.jar</systemPath>
>     </dependency>
> but this would:
>     <dependency>
>        <groupId>yuck</groupId>
>        <artifactId>ugh</artifactId>
>        <version>4.2.8</version>
>        <scope>system</scope>
>        <systemPath>C:/dumb/way/to/set/up/maven/dependency</systemPath>
>     </dependency>
> That way at least users are warned when they're doing something dumb, and if they change
to the variable-based form, they stand a fighting chance of having portable builds.
