Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-5047) Child of child without scm causes NPE
Date Mon, 21 Mar 2011 17:32:22 GMT


Tim Pizey commented on MNG-5047:

I added an scm element and got an error which told me I am not allowed to do what I want to

[ERROR] Invalid packaging for parent POM org.atombeat:atombeat-integration-tests:0.2-alpha-10-SNAPSHOT,
must be "pom" but is "jar" @ org.atombeat:atombeat-integration-tests:0.2-alpha-10-SNAPSHOT

I would have expected to be able to extend a "jar" pom, so as to override a property for example.

> A grandchild pom, ie a pom with a parent with a parent throws an NPE. 
> The NPE seems to be due to an assumption that the SCM will be present.
