Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-5900) early interpolation: support ${this.*} as expression
Date Sun, 03 Apr 2016 07:14:25 GMT


Hervé Boutemy commented on MNG-5900:

given everything happens in a XML file (not a code source file), with a specific expression
syntax and usual {{$\{project.*}}} expressions, I don't really understand what confusion you
fear by having now {{$\{this.*}}} expressions
But for sure, we'll add any explanation that you'll feel useful

>             Project: Maven
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Inheritance and Interpolation

> Right now we have $\{project.\*} which always interpolates values based on the final
project: "classical" interpolation is "late" interpolation. So it is not possible that parent
poms can lock values, ie avoid child poms override. By adding $\{this} for "early" interpolation,
it will be possible to have intermediate interpolation.
> If a pomfile depends on a parent, that parent will first resolve all $\{this.\*} values
for itself. Once the fully inherited pom is there, all $\{project.\*} will be resolved.
