Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6981) Add --recursive option
Date Wed, 09 Sep 2020 18:07:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6981?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=17193098#comment-17193098
] 

Martin Kanters commented on MNG-6981:
-------------------------------------

This feature seemed to be easy to implement and has limited effect on existing integration
tests:
- [https://github.com/apache/maven/pull/374]
- [https://github.com/apache/maven-integration-testing/pull/71] 

One caveat is that --non-recursive has effect on the pom file on the MavenExecutionRequest
(meaning: the pom.xml in the working directory or a pom file specified with -f).
When --non-recursive is used, only that specific pom file is collected as project. So, the
reactor can only consist of that project. This results in that --pl cannot be combined with
--non-recursive. (-f can though, see [integration testing PR|https://github.com/apache/maven-integration-testing/pull/71]).

> 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.
