Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-5987) Document the algorithm calculating the order of plugin executions.
Date Sat, 02 Jul 2016 06:43:11 GMT


Hervé Boutemy commented on MNG-5987:

bq. Order of declaration is really unreliable and complicated to understand when it comes
to profiles and parents, and I'm not sure was ever really well-defined (or at least well-documented)
it was documented and chosen that order of execution is not something you can count on: phases
are ordered, mojos in a phase simply are not
and we never pushed this to making it random, whouch would have been one way to make people
understand that order of executionin a phase is not expected to be controlled: that is the
design (that so much people don't want to understand when we explain them again and again)

>            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.
