Subject [jira] (MNGSITE-153) POM Inheritance section is incorrect
Date Sun, 11 Mar 2012 17:37:02 GMT
Alex Glass created MNGSITE-153:

             Summary: POM Inheritance section is incorrect
                 Key: MNGSITE-153
             Project: Maven Project Web Site
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Alex Glass

The sections "Project Inheritance" and "Project Aggregation" fail to mention that inheriting
or aggregating requires the parent project to be packaged as pom.





Failure to specify the packaging results in errors like:

* [ERROR]     'packaging' with value 'jar' is invalid. Aggregator projects require 'pom' as
packaging. @ line 1, column 204

* [ERROR]     Invalid packaging for parent POM (...\pom.xml), must
be "pom" but is "jar" @, ...\pom.xml
