Subject [jira] (MRELEASE-239) release:perform and release:prepare should accept multi-line goals/preparationGoals configurations
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2012 17:34:03 GMT


Robert Scholte commented on MRELEASE-239:

I think we need to add the tab-character too. 
Also: the {{InvokerMavenExecutor}} still splits on spaces only. This is valid according to
the javadoc, which states that {{goals}} is a space-delimited String. Maybe it is better add
an overloaded method to the {{AbstractExecutor}}, which already translates the String to an
array of goals, so there's no doubt about its content.

>                 Key: MRELEASE-239
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Release Plugin
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: prepare
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta-6
>            Reporter: Steve Rowe
>            Assignee: Stephen Connolly
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 2.2.1
>         Attachments: ForkedMavenExecutor.patch
> When I specify a list of goals in my POM that span multiple lines (see an example below),
only those goals before the newline are executed when I run "mvn release:perform". 
> I have only noticed this for release:perform, but given what the code looks like, I assume
it's an issue for release:prepare too.
> This is a minor problem, but an irritating one, because release:peform claims to successfully
complete without actually executing all specified goals.
> I attach a patch to that splits the goals list on newlines and
carriage returns, in addition to the comma and space split characters that were there already.
> Here's an example configuration that will trigger the problem:
>       <plugin>
>         <artifactId>maven-release-plugin</artifactId>
>         <configuration>
>           ...
>           <goals>
>             package group:first-goal group:second-goal group:third-goal
>             site-deploy changes:announcement-generate changes:announcement-mail
>           </goals>
>         </configuration>
>       </plugin>
