Subject [jira] Created: (CXF-3051) Rename all POM properties that change dependency versions
Date Fri, 08 Oct 2010 11:24:31 GMT
Rename all POM properties that change dependency versions
---------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CXF-3051
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-3051
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Build system
    Affects Versions: 2.2.10, 2.3
            Reporter: Benson Margulies


The maven gang discourages:

    <version>${blah}</version>

One reason is that maven does *not* resolve these references before publishing a pom in the
release process. Our released poms contain property definitions and dependencies that use
them.

If, for example, a user innocently create a setting for jetty.version that is, oh, for jetty
version 8, maven will forget, entirely that we carefully declared a dependency on version
7.

The fix we can live with is to make all of these properties have names of the form cxf-*,
so that other people won't accidently set them.
