Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-810) Beam's uses of archetypes are problematic
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2016 03:16:58 GMT


Kenneth Knowles commented on BEAM-810:

Can you link to an example failure of the archetypes? Since I have this paged in, maybe something
will come to me.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Beam

>          Components: build-system
>    Affects Versions: Not applicable
>            Reporter: Daniel Halperin
> * Using a version range in the archetype pom.xml is inaccurate, because we don't have
a stable API. We can't actually expect an older version to work as we make backwards-incompatible
> * In PR #936, a decision was made to pin the version of the archetype. This requires
manual changes to update many places (archetype-resources), which breaks the release process
in a few different ways. See [BEAM-806].
> * Travis uses `mvn verify`, not `mvn install` -- so archetypes are not properly tested
and instead we're actually picking up the SNAPSHOT archetypes deployed the prior night (IIRC).
> * There was some other issue with parallelizing maven where archetypes are not properly
marked as depending on "you can't test the archetype until you've installed the examples packages".
> * We're not actually testing that the archetype-generated projects actually compile.
> This is all pretty ugly. Suggestions wanted.
