Subject maven-maven-plugin vs. maven-invoker-plugin
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2007 03:11:44 GMT
This is mostly aimed at Prasad...

But I think we should start using the maven-invoker-plugin to run the  
bits under testsuite/*

As I recall the only reason I created maven-maven-plugin was to set  
the list of profiles the child executed under.  Unfortunately its not  
terribly easy to add this to the maven-invoker-plugin, since the API  
which that plugin uses (the core maven-invoker bits) does not expose  
control over the profiles to be used.

BUT... should be easy enough to simply set a property and use  
activation to flip them on.

I've recently decided I like the maven-invoker-plugin much more,  
since it produces by default little output for child builds and  
clearly states which ones fail.  One of the things I don't like about  
our testsuite/* is that if you run it from the top-level you get a  
*ton* of output and its hard to tell which pass and which don't.

  * * *

I'm not going to change anything right now... but I think we should  
consider dropping maven-maven-plugin and just using maven-invoker- 

What do you think?
