Subject [MERLIN] running Merlin inside Maven
Date Thu, 08 May 2003 05:24:11 GMT

I've just made a couple of updates to the Merlin plug-in to extent 
capabilities to include simulated deployment of components based on the 
Maven target/classes content and, secondly, validation of deployment of 
a jar file containing components.  Unfortunately these features are 
totally undocumented at this time, however, if you have Merlin installed 
(and recently updated), you can do any of the following from within Maven:


     generates xinfo and xservice descriptors based on
     javadoc tags automatically


     locates components in the target/classes directory and
     follows deployment directives defined under a
     conf/block.xml file.


     takes a jar file generated by maven and executes it as
     a proper block (i.e. a DU exposing a bunch of services)
     based on packaged compoent descriptors and a block.xml
     deployment directive
Both the simulate and deploy tags recognize Merlin and Phoenix 
descriptors - so not problem dealing with content in projects like 
cornerstone. Documentation and the usual examples should be available 
with a week or so.  This will include all three areas, meta generation, 
pre-jar validation, and post jar deployment checks.

Cheers, Steve.
