Subject [test] Instructions to test Cocoon 2.2-final
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2008 15:38:34 GMT

The proposed release artifacts of all the modules that we vote on (see the
seperate voting thread) are available at

The easiest way to test the artifacts is by adding a "cocoon-staging" profile to
your ~/.m2/settings.xml:

              <name>Cocoon staging repository</name>
              <name>Cocoon staging repository</name>

Then change the version number of the artifacts that you use in your POMs
to the number of the proposed artifact and append "-P cocoon-staging" to all
your Maven commands, e.g.

mvn install -P cocoon-staging

                                        - o -

In order to test the archetypes

   - cocoon-22-archetype-block-1.0.0
   - cocoon-22-archetype-webapp-1.0.0
   - cocoon-22-archetype-block-plain-1.0.0

append -DremoteRepositories= to your "mvn
   org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:1.0-alpha-7:create" commands,

mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:1.0-alpha-7:create

The commands to use the archetypes and explanations of what they are for can be
found at (Note: Make sure that you
set the correct archetypeVersion parameter!).

Note that the -DremoteRepositories switch is broken with the 2.0-alpha versions 
of the Maven archetype plugin. Therefore I propose to use 1.0-alpha-7.

                                        - o -

Find the non-Maven release artifacts at The content is the same as
in the Maven staging repository - the docs come from our site directory in SVN.

                                        - o -

Please test the "getting-started" application
whether it runs at your environment.

                                        - o -

In general, please check if the release artifacts meet all legal
requirements of the ASF. (checksums, signatures, license & notice files)
