Subject RE: How to import all modules of Maven 2 project
Date Sun, 19 Aug 2007 22:06:30 GMT

Adding support of Maven profiles in adding project won't be so hard.
But does this profile must be added automatically in the build definition ? (in your case
adding -Pallblocks in Arguments)
Can you fill an issue concerning this ?

I don't know if you need a workaround but a simple is to add in the machine you use in the
file ~/.m2/settings.xml :

We gradually move modules into default build so situation improves but I fear such a radical
change is not an option for us, now.

That does not solve our problem because our root pom looks like this:
     <!-- sub projects -->

The rest is defined in other poms, so I would have to create recursively ci-pom.xml files
or create one big, aggregated ci-pom.xml files. Second option is not perfect because it still
involves recursive, manual scanning. With help of little scripting I could build some bash
script but I would really like to avoid doing this.

This involves writing custom Java app which is even worse IMO.

I'm wondering if adding support for Maven profiles to Continuum would be that hard?

Thanks for answer.
