Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6392) Add Project Settings .mvn/settings.xml
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2018 17:22:00 GMT


James Z.M. Gao commented on MNG-6392:

[~rfscholte] yeah, settings.xml includes not only <profiles/>, also includes <mirrors/>,
<proxies/> and <servers/>.

>                 Key: MNG-6392
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Bootstrap &amp; Build, Settings
>    Affects Versions: 3.5.3
>            Reporter: James Z.M. Gao
>            Priority: Major
> Maven originally have two settings slots, user and global. But the project need and should
have more ability to control how itself built by maven. Just follow the core-extension way,
we can add a new settings slot, project settings at 
> {code:java}
> ${maven.multiModuleProjectDirectory}/.mvn/settings.xml{code}
> Then the settings merge order from high priority to low is
>  * project level
>  * user level
>  * global level
> This order is widely used in many projects such as git.
> In the project settings, we should always ignore some _personal local_ fields, including
localRepository, interactiveMode, offline and usePluginRegistry.
> With this feature, many things become easy. When we developing multiply projects from
different organizations/companies/envrionments, the maven configurations may conflict, and
are annoying to manage (edit manually or use some switch scripts each time we switch the project
or environment). Another problem is when using some corp maven repositories or mirros for
bootstraping the team common root poms or core-extensions, the developers have to do some
setup actions. But the projects should be `mvn verify`-ed out of box.
> Here is a [fast implementation via core-extension|],
but this feature should woks before loading extensions.
