Subject [jira] (MCOMPILER-229) Compilation error should be reported as by javac tool
Date Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:58:10 GMT
Leonid Ilyevsky created MCOMPILER-229:

             Summary: Compilation error should be reported as by javac tool
                 Key: MCOMPILER-229
             Project: Maven Compiler Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 3.1, 3.2
         Environment: All
            Reporter: Leonid Ilyevsky

Currently for compilation error the plugin prints out the java file path, with the line number
and position number in brackets, and no more details.
This is very inconvenient, especially when doing build from command line.
Unlike this, if you simply invoke "javac", it will print the whole line from Java file that
contains the error, and under that a line with a single "^" symbol pointing to the problematic
location on that line.
It would be very useful to add this feature, at least as an option (though I believe it should
be fine to just fix it so it behaves exactly like javac).
