Subject [jira] Created: (MNG-5050) Inherited profile activation not working within local POM
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2011 14:20:24 GMT
Inherited profile activation not working within local POM
---------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MNG-5050
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-5050
             Project: Maven 2 & 3
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.0.3, 3.0.2, 3.0.1, 3.0, 2.2.1
         Environment: Tested with M3.0.2 and M2.2.1 on MacOS X (OS surely not relevant)
            Reporter: wolfgang häfelinger
         Attachments: MNG-3228.zip

This demo consists of four file:
(1) README.txt
(2) pom.xml
(3) parent-pom.xml
(4) pom-no-profile-no-dep.xml

File" pom.xml" is the POM expected to activate profile "logging" defined in "parent-pom.xml".
This does not work as clearly outlined in the original bug report MNG-3228 [http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-3228].

File "pom-no-profile-no-dep.xml" is essentially the same as file "pom.xml". Section <dependencies
/> and profile activation has been removed in order to get goal "help:effective-profiles"
working.

The demo works like this: Install parent POM in local cache (~/.m2/repository).
% mvn -f parent-pom.xml install

Then try this:

Test 1:
% mvn -f pom.xml package
=> error

Test 2:
% mvn -f pom.xml package -Dactivate-profile-logging=true
=> good

Test 3:
% mvn -f pom.xml package -Plogging=true
=> good

Test 4:
% mvn -f pom-no-profile-no-dep.xml help:active-profiles
=> profile "logging" is not shown (expeced, but see next test)

Test 5:
% mvn -f pom-no-profile-no-dep.xml help:active-profiles -Dactivate-profile-logging=true
=> does not show profile "logging" although "logging" must be active (otherwise: why would
second test work?)

Summary:
1. maven-help-plugin can't be trusted on reporting active profiles.
2. Activating inherited profiles differs from activating local profiles. 

The second issue is clearly (!) a design bug cause there is no good reason why inherited elements
behave differently from local elements.
