Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-2507) Error releasing project with POM encoded in UTF-8 with BOM
Date Thu, 06 May 2010 05:49:12 GMT


Maria Catherine Tan commented on CONTINUUM-2507:

I tried running mvn release:prepare for a POM with BOM at the start of the text stream in
the command line and I'm getting the same error. Running clean install didn't work as well
and I'm using maven 2.2.1 

What maven version did you use? 

Can you also give a sample project for this. Thanks!

> I have a Visual Studio project, when I do perform release in Continuum it results in:
Release Error Unable to get release plugin parameters and process project - only whitespace
content allowed before start tag and not \uef (position: START_DOCUMENT seen \uef... @1:1).
The error doesn't indicate which file Continuum is having a problem processing. After some
time spent investigating the files, I noticed the BOM character was in the POM causing the
error in release. Additionally,I was able to successfully run 'mvn release:prepare -DdryRun=true
-DautoVersionSubmodules=true' at the command line.
