Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-5075) MavenProject.getParent throws undocumented ISE
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2011 23:51:51 GMT


Jesse Glick commented on MNG-5075:

If you mean {{ant -f maven-core/pom.xml test}} or {{mvn clean install test integration-test}}
then both pass with the patch.

a stack trace encountered when calling {{MavenProject.getParent}} on a project with some errors
(probably POMs missing in the local repository).
> This method has no Javadoc comment, so it is hard to know exactly what it is permitted/supposed
to do, but {{hasParent}} implies that {{null}} is a valid return value, and there is no {{throws
IllegalStateException}} clause. The attached patch brings the behavior in line with that signature.
(I think I got the {{PlexusTestCase}} infrastructure working with all the required wiring
but it may be possible to simplify the test case.)
> Cleaner might be to just declare {{getParent}} (and also {{hasParent}}?) to throw {{ProjectBuildingException}},
though this would be a source-incompatible change. (Only binary-incompatible for clients which
are already catching {{IllegalStateException}}!)
