Subject [jira] Commented: (MDEPLOY-95) Rename plugin (and life-cycle phase) from Deploy to Publish
Date Tue, 22 Feb 2011 03:35:22 GMT


Paul Gier commented on MDEPLOY-95:

I agree the term "deploy" is not intuitive.  Either "publish" or "upload" would have been
better terms.  However, at this point it would be difficult to change the name since it is
widely used in the Maven world.

>                 Key: MDEPLOY-95
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Deploy Plugin
>          Issue Type: Wish
>            Reporter: Neil Crow
>            Priority: Minor
> Developers often speak about deploying their application to this server or that server,
which does not correspond to the usage that maven has for "Deploy".
> To remedy this situation, and to reduce confusion due to overloaded usage (Fallacy of
Equivocation), I suggest that the Deploy plugin and related life-cycle phase be renamed to
the Publish plugin.
> A quick google on "maven deploy publish" shows that many people out there are using the
Deploy plugin to Publish artifacts to a maven repository.
> After Publishing to a maven repository, they will deploy to a server.
