Subject [jira] Commented: (SCM-531) Incorrect SCM URL constructed when using parent POM that is not in the parent directory
Date Thu, 18 Mar 2010 19:21:22 GMT


João Rafael Nicola commented on SCM-531:

I am also experiencing a similar effect.

My parent pom has, for example:


When running "mvn help:effective-pom" on the child, whose artifactId is, for example, child-project,
I get:


instead of the expected:


For some reason, the developerConnection property gets appended with the artifactId when inherited.
Although this makes sense when dealing with a multi-module project which is versioned in a
single project structure in subversion, it does not when the parent pom is used just to standardize
some properties on the pom, which each child project independently versioned.

I think there should be some way to disable this behaviour.

 The property is getting replaced ok, but the the extra bit?  This has got to be a bug.
> I'm not releasing the project, just building the site.
> Any ideas?  If this is against the wrong project, can it be moved?
