Subject RE: AW: [Maven - Squiggly] release (was: RE: [jira] [Created] (FLEX-34640) Squiggly: Generate / Package RSLs and deploy with Maven)
Date Sat, 22 Nov 2014 15:22:20 GMT

To continue on the idea of generating from our own VMs the needed artifacts / poms and having
a job running on build.a.o taking it and deploy it, I found this Maven plugin [1] which I
guess could help for a bulk deploy, now, the only remaining problem is in how to pass the
built artifacts from the VM to build.a.o.

A possibility could maybe having a Private Maven Repo on the VM, only accessible from the
job on build.a.o with credentials, still from the VM, having a job that create an assembly
from the artifacts we want to deploy, basically all snapshots, then from build.a.o extract
the assembly an use the maven-bulk-deploy.

Thoughts ?

> Well the projects currently built with Maven are, as you stated, almost all Java. I encountered
one project actually built with flexmojos but we can't have this built on b.a.o as this would
require a mavenized release version of Flex and this is missing. As soon as we have all our
stuff out officially with maven I think a lot of things will be becoming more and more easy.

agent's local maven repo, but I doubt this would work.

environment variables, binary requirements and so on are only needed because there is no structure.
Not a single Maven built module has need for any of these settings (Ok ... flexmojos built
ones do have the requirement to have the flashplayer and adl on the path, but that's all).
But I know ... a maven built SDK won't be coming ... but if you stop dreaming, you've already
lost ;-)
