Subject [jira] (MRELEASE-736) Add dryRun flag to release:perform
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2012 21:57:03 GMT


Robert Scholte commented on MRELEASE-736:

Fixed in [rev. 1299068|] for the plugin,
the manager has already been prepared in previous commits.
There's only one thing which I'm not sure about: the perform-goals will be executed against
the original project instead of the checked out project (that's good). But this also means
that it will {{deploy}} (and often {{site-deploy}}) this SNAPSHOT-project. Should we try to
catch these goals and replace it with {{verify}} and {{site}} respectively? Or add another
option so you can choose? Prompt for it? Don't execute the goals, just say that it normally
would? Or just leave it like this?

goal too.
> I have the following use case:
> Jenkins/Hudson has a plugin called m2release which basically is there to help the user
to trigger a maven release. This plugin allows to define a commandline which should be executed
in case of a release build. The common configuration of this arguments are:
> "-Dresume=false release:prepare release:perform"
> the next version of the plugin would like to add a "dryRun" option when triggering a
build and in this case it would just add "-DdryRun=true" to the configured arguments and thats
> Unfortunately this will not work, as the "release:perform" still gets executed and will
> Of course I could also change the Jenkins/Hudson plugin, but this would mean I have to
remove "release:perform" from the passed argument, which is relay ugly.
