Subject [jira] Commented: (MPJIRA-19) html tags inside CDATA are ignored
Date Mon, 06 Dec 2010 22:15:03 GMT


Brett Porter commented on MPJIRA-19:

are you referring to Maven 2's changes plugin, or Maven 1's JIRA plugin (where this was filed)?

>                 Key: MPJIRA-19
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 1.x JIRA Plugin
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Cleber Zarate
>            Priority: Blocker
> Our changes.xml files contains html tags inside the <action> tag. That's the way
we found to add links to our repositories in our projects. To get it to work, we used to wrap
the contents of the <action> tag in a <[!CDATA[ tag.
> For instance, the following <action> tag would generate a valid link in the generated
> <action dev="cleberz"><![CDATA[Hello, <a href="">Disneyworld!</a>]]></action>
> This worked fine till version 2.2. Version 2.3 is replacing the < and > by character
references (i.e., &lt; &gt;) thus preventing the link from working on the report.
> As a side note, if we leave out the CDATA tag, an exception is thrown by the parser,
but this seems to be happening in all versions. Please fix that when possible so that we can
update for the latest version. Thank you!
