Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6981) Add --recursive option
Date Wed, 09 Sep 2020 06:36:00 GMT


Martin Kanters commented on MNG-6981:

[~rfscholte] that's right, we are indeed still implementing that feature under MG-6118 (we
are nearing the end..).
I don't think it will help [~d96knut] a lot, though.

Perhaps a bit more logical/straightforward approach would be to let -f accept a list of pom
files, which would allow a user to `mvn <goal> -f m1,m2`?

> 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.
