Subject Re: Can't build trunk with a clean maven repository
Date Tue, 16 Jan 2007 08:55:50 GMT
The problem is that the cocoon-pipeline-impl TEST-jar is missing. 
Test-jars are built in the test step, ie. -Dmaven.test.skip=true is 
*not* set. Normally only other test-jars depend on such a test-jar (e.g. 
when you have a Test base class, which is the case in cocoon, although I 
am not familiar with the new core-split-up yet).

Test dependencies are marked as dependencies with the scope "test" in 
maven, so they are only resolved when the test phase is running.

In this case the dependency comes from cocoon-pipeline-components, which 
is the normal jar, not the test-jar. This means someone either forgot 
the <scope>test</scope> in the dependency-section in 
cocoon-pipeline-components pom or for some weird reason the 
pipeline-components code does use some test classes. In the latter case 
you have to built the test-jar for cocoon-pipeline-impl manually by 
going into this directory and call mvn install (without test skip) to 
built the test jar, then go back and do a normal mvn 
-Dmaven.test.skip=true install, because now the test-jar is present.

If the creation of the test-jar fails, because the tests itself fail, 
one should fix the tests.

But I suppose (without looking at the code) that the correct scope 
property is missing.

This is one of those maven things you won't find in any tutorial but 
have to learn yourself....
