Subject [jira] Commented: (COCOON-2214) Update C22 block building process through use of Maven archetype:generate command
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2008 07:13:45 GMT


Grzegorz Kossakowski commented on COCOON-2214:

David, I've previously missed three important issues about your achetype-catalog.xml:
1. It should contain Apache header but since you have attached it as contribution that's not
a show-stopper.
2. Versions listed in the file are SNAPSHOT ones coming from building the Cocoon from trunk.
That's a mistake as other people won't be able to use them because SNAPSHOTs are never released
to central repository. Here you can consult versions of Cocoon artifacts that has been released:
3. The description of archetypes is little bit misleading. The best option is to borrow them

Even though I can fix those myself I'll have time for this tomorrow. If you don't mind upload
improved file please so it'll faster get uploaded.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Cocoon
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: - Build System: Maven, - Documentation
>    Affects Versions: 2.2, 2.2-dev (Current SVN)
>            Reporter: David Legg
>            Assignee: Grzegorz Kossakowski
>            Priority: Minor
>         Attachments: archetype-catalog.xml
> Version 2.0.9 (and maybe earlier) of Maven has deprecated the use of the archetype:create
goal in favour of archetype:generate.
> As of this report the Cocoon Tutorial uses archetype:create in its instructions and this
causes a warning to be issued when attempting to build blocks.
> After discussion on the list it was felt the solution was to start using archetype:generate
but this changes the behaviour of Maven such that it interactively asks for values such as
the artifactId and groupId etc.  Unfortunately, the first question it asks is which archetype
you wish to build and by default this list is huge and will continue to grow as more projects
use it.
> Attached to this note is a file which if placed in a suitable location on the Cocoon
web site could be used to reduce the archetype list to just those required for Cocoon (Currently
3 items).
> The Cocoon tutorial would need to be updated to replace the archetype:create command
to something like the following: -
>   mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeCatalog=http://[path to catalog]/archetype-catalog.xml
> This would generate output similar to the following: -
>   [INFO] Scanning for projects...
>   [INFO] Searching repository for plugin with prefix: 'archetype'.
>   ...
>   [INFO] [archetype:generate]
>   [INFO] Generating project in Interactive mode
>   [INFO] No archetype defined. Using maven-archetype-quickstart (org.apache.maven.archetypes:maven-archetype-quickstart:1.0)
>   Choose archetype:
>   1: local -> cocoon-22-archetype-block-plain (Creates an empty Cocoon block)
>   2: local -> cocoon-22-archetype-block (Creates a minimal Cocoon block)
>   3: local -> cocoon-22-archetype-webapp (Creates a web application Cocoon block)
>   Choose a number:  (1/2/3): Choose archetype:
> This should be much more comprehensible to new users.
