Subject [jira] (MRELEASE-736) Add dryRun flag to release:perform
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2012 18:23:03 GMT


Robert Scholte commented on MRELEASE-736:

@olamy, almost but not quite. Every {{ReleasePhase}} must implement the execute and simulate
methods. Right now there's no option to pass the dryRun option on a perform-method of the
{{ReleaseManager}}, so it should be added. Actually, the number of arguments is growing and
growing, so I think we should create a {{ReleasePerformRequest}} as an argument container.

goal too.
> I have the following use case:
> Jenkins/Hudson has a plugin called m2release which basically is there to help the user
to trigger a maven release. This plugin allows to define a commandline which should be executed
in case of a release build. The common configuration of this arguments are:
> "-Dresume=false release:prepare release:perform"
> the next version of the plugin would like to add a "dryRun" option when triggering a
build and in this case it would just add "-DdryRun=true" to the configured arguments and thats
> Unfortunately this will not work, as the "release:perform" still gets executed and will
> Of course I could also change the Jenkins/Hudson plugin, but this would mean I have to
remove "release:perform" from the passed argument, which is relay ugly.
