Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6981) Add --recursive option
Date Mon, 07 Sep 2020 18:39:00 GMT


Knut Wannheden commented on MNG-6981:

I don't see any trouble when combining with -rf, but combining with -am or -amd wouldn't make
any sense, if that were already part of the expression language. But I can also understand
if you don't want to support something like that. Can I write my own plugin for this?

Anyway, in this issue I actually wanted some kind of --recursive option. I understand if you
don't want that either, of course.

Let me know if you want a separate issue to discuss the idea of the expression language.

> Since there is already a {{\--non-recursive}} option a new {{\--recursive}} option might
be confusing, but let me explain my use case. I often use the {{-pl}} option and in a multi-module
Maven project with more than just two "levels", I would like to be able to build a project
(or set of projects) including all child-modules. This is, AFAIK, currently not possible and
what I would like to use the new {{\--recursive}} (or similar) option for.
