For test and other purposes Apache Directory Projects can be deployed to a custom location (e.g. locally). This guide will walk you through the process by preparing your maven configuration.
You'll need a profiles section to add the properties needed for customization. Here's what my settings.xml file in ~/.m2 looks like:
<settings xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/settings-1.0.0.xsd"> <profiles> <profile> <id>deploy-local</id> <properties> <!-- This property is needed to customize where the goal 'deploy' will deploy artifacts to --> <distMgmtSnapshotsUrl>scpexe://localhost/tmp/local-directory-deployment</distMgmtSnapshotsUrl> </properties> </profile> <profiles> </settings>
