Subject [jira] [Created] (MNG-6131) Support pom without coordinate
Date Sun, 04 Dec 2016 13:20:58 GMT
Robert Scholte created MNG-6131:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: Support pom without coordinate
                 Key: MNG-6131
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6131
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: FDPFC, POM
            Reporter: Robert Scholte


In some cases the GAV is only there because Maven expects it, even though these coordinates
will never be used.
The most common case is an aggregator: it will only trigger module without being part of a
multimodule project.
Another case I'm thinking of are test-cases, where you want to show the behavior of some plugins.
This project self will (or should!) never be installed or deployed.
In general: the GAV is only required when another project will refer to it or if you want
to distribute the project via a M2-repository manager.
