Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3969) maven2 module goals should use standard server definitions.
Date Sun, 20 Apr 2008 10:08:25 GMT


Jacek Laskowski commented on GERONIMO-3969:

Although I have almost no experience as far as maven plugins go yet I'm leaning towards Brill's
point of view. I consider settings.xml file a global registry of user settings. The settings.xml
file's documentation page -

"This is a reference for the user-specific configuration for Maven."

So, I can envision that when a project uses Geronimo a developer could configure it differently
with properties (as Dave pointed out) or <server> stanza. Although <server> stanza
is used for wagon-based plugins (deploy and such) we could borrow some ideas from it to let
people use it for Geronimo too. If they don't it quickly becomes a dead code and we'll whack
it. It should be pretty easy to implement and I'd bet there're people out there who'd like
to contribute to Geronimo and that would be an excellent task to get started with.

BTW, Dave, why are you so worried that we could potentially overuse <server> stanza?

entered in the settings.xml file.
> However it appears that I have to add the administrators username and password to the
plugin definition, which in turn means that some highly secured information will get checked
into source control.

site (that I could find). located at:

the security implications (in my case it makes it unusable).
