Subject [jira] Created: (MNG-5022) Unable to use a Mojo with a setter
Date Tue, 22 Feb 2011 13:31:23 GMT
Unable to use a Mojo with a setter

                 Key: MNG-5022
             Project: Maven 2 & 3
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation:  General, Plugin API, Plugin Requests, Plugins and Lifecycle
    Affects Versions: 2.2.1
         Environment: $ mvn -version
Apache Maven 2.2.1 (r801777; 2009-08-06 21:16:01+0200)
Java version: 1.6.0_22
Java home: /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: MacRoman
OS name: "mac os x" version: "10.6.4" arch: "x86_64" Family: "mac"

            Reporter: wolfgang häfelinger
            Priority: Critical

According to documentation (Maven Book, p405), the following example should work ("You can
also use these annotations on public setter methods, [..]").

 * @goal echo
 * @requiresProject false
public class EchoMojo extends AbstractMojo {
	private String msg;
	 * @parameter expression="${echo.message}" 
	public void setMessage(String message) {
		this.msg = message;
	public void execute() throws MojoExecutionException,MojoFailureException {
		getLog().info("what now??");

It does not work.

The generated plugin.xml states, that there are *no* parameters for this Mojo:
== plugin.xml ==
