Subject [jira] Commented: (MRELEASE-352) Record Maven version and java version used during release.
Date Fri, 27 Aug 2010 12:37:32 GMT


Baptiste MATHUS commented on MRELEASE-352:

This is a good idea, but I'm not sure this must be done by the release plugin. This is really
something that's always useful to know afterwards, even with snapshots. I think this should
always be done for packaging.

>                 Key: MRELEASE-352
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Release Plugin
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: perform
>            Reporter: Paul Gier
> The release plugin should be able to record the version of Maven and the version of the
JDK that were used when the release was done.
> For example, the prepare phase could write a file called environment-settings.xml that
contains the version of Maven and of Java that were used during the prepare step.  This file
could look something like this:
> {code:xml} 
> <environment>
>   <maven>
>     <version>2.0.8</version>
>   </maven>
>   <java>
>     <version>1.4.2_15</version>
>     <vendor>sun</vendor>
>   </java>
>   <os>
>     <name>windows</name>
>     ...
>   </os>
> </environment>
> {code}
> The perform part of the release would then make sure that these settings match when the
project is re-built and deployed.  There could also be another goal in the release plugin,
like "check-environment" that would check that the environment settings match.  That goal
could be used when trying to rebuild an old release.
