Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-5987) Document the algorithm calculating the order of plugin executions.
Date Thu, 03 Mar 2016 18:56:18 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on MNG-5987:

I don't think this issue is *just* about documenting it. The issues that were closed in favor
of this (MNG-4578, and its more informative duplicate MNG-5539) identify the fact that plugin
execution order is *NOT preserved* when the plugins are merged in from profiles. It doesn't
matter whether the current behavior is documented or not... it is still a problem that the
order is not preserved. Closing those other issues implies this is a documentation issue only...
when really it's a behavior problem.

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Christian Schulte
>            Priority: Critical
> Users continuously report issues regarding the order of plugin executions: repeating
that this order is not expected to be guaranteed inside a phase is not convincing for them.
> The algorithm used to calculate the order of executions performed by Maven needs to be
> - declaration order in the POM
> - inheritance merging from parent POM,
> - merging of profiles and other plugin containers,
> - the order of executions of multiple executions in the same lifecycle phase,
>  etc.
