Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6064) Add "dev" string item into ComparableVersion
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2016 18:50:20 GMT


Karl Heinz Marbaise commented on MNG-6064:

If I take a deeper look into the description I'm asking myself why do I need to create different
version identifiers If don't have committed a change? If I don't have committed a change this
means it is locally on my hard drive which means nobody else can use it...furthermore why
does the kind version identifier influences if I create a tag or not? Apart from that if you
like you can check if Maven can handle such versions via:
java -jar /usr/share/java/apache-maven-3.3.9/lib/maven-artifact-3.3.9.jar 0.1.0-milestone.1
Display parameters as parsed by Maven (in canonical form) and comparison result:
1. 0.1.0-milestone.1 == 0.1-milestone.1
   0.1.0-milestone.1 <
2. ==
which shows correctly that the version {{}} is identifier greater
than the version {{0.1.0-milestone.1}}.

> We're using a popular Gradle plugin "gradle-git" ( from Andrew Oberstar ) to implement
Semantic Versioning with Continuous Deployment. There's a strategy supported by gradle-git
that defines a "dev" stage when we have something uncommitted on a developer branch, which
is very useful. Some examples to demonstrate the "dev" scenario can be found here:
> However, current version of  org.apache.maven.artifact.versioning.ComparableVersion does
not support "dev" stage since there's no item "dev" in the field _QUALIFIERS of nested class
StringItem. And since this is a private static final field, it is not able to be overwritten
by inheritance. Can we add the "dev" item into _QUALIFIERS ?
