Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-234) Build fails when maven/plugins is not writable
Date Fri, 05 Nov 2004 17:05:33 GMT
     [ http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-234?page=comments#action_55108 ]
     
Aaron Mulder commented on GERONIMO-234:
---------------------------------------

We could write a little Java test that would fail with a helpful message if the Maven directory
wasn't writeable.  Something like:

ERROR: The build cannot complete successfully if it can't install plugins to your Maven plugins
directory.  It seems that the directory (wherever)/maven/plugins is not writeable.  Please
fix that and try again.
...
BUILD FAILED
...

Of course, we'd need to be able to run that test before actually attempting to install the
plugins, which I guess would mean we'd need a little "sanity check" module or something. 
Or perhaps we could just put it in as a unit test for each plugin, if that would run before
Maven tries to install the plugin.

to unexpected results in a multi-user environment where maven is shared among users?
