Subject [jira] (MEAR-188) Project property cannot be resolved inside <env-entry> element
Date Sun, 15 Jun 2014 14:44:10 GMT


Maciej Kara? commented on MEAR-188:

Thanks for your message. Could you explain why it works for *applicationName* parameter and
not with *envEntry*? Someone on Stackoverflow said that it is due to fact that envEntries
are load through PlexusConfiguration thus the dynamic project properties are not read.

> I have created simple ear project with filters. I want to use different settings for
each environment and those settings should be passed to generated *application.xml* file inside
the *env-entries*. The generation of ear package is done as shown below:

>                             <env-entry-type>java.lang.String</env-entry-type>
>                             <env-entry-value>${}</env-entry-value>
>                         </env-entry>
>                     </envEntries>
>                     <applicationName>${}</applicationName>
>                 </configuration>

> To read maven project properties from external properties file I had to use another plugin:
[properties-maven-plugin|]. It successfully
reads properties from file and sets them as maven project properties, so I can insert them
in pom.xml file using *${}*. It works for most of the pom.xml elements (i.e. *<applicationName>*),
unfortunately it is not successfully looked up when I place it inside *env-entry* element
where I need it. Below is generated *application.xml*.
> {code:xml}
>     <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
>     <application xmlns="" xmlns:xsi=""
>         <application-name>default property</application-name>
>         <display-name>test</display-name>
>         <env-entry>
>             <env-entry-name>customProperty</env-entry-name>
>             <env-entry-type>java.lang.String</env-entry-type>
>             <env-entry-value>${}</env-entry-value>
>         </env-entry>
>     </application>
> {code}
> If I put project properties inside the <properties></properties> block everything
works fine, but that doesn't allow me to use filters for *application.xml*.
> I'm attaching maven project with all necessary configuration. I have also submitted an
issue at [Stackoverflow|],
because I didn't have account here.
