Subject [jira] [Commented] (JSPWIKI-651) Convert JSPWiki to a Maven project
Date Tue, 29 Jan 2013 04:13:12 GMT


Glen Mazza commented on JSPWIKI-651:

Sure, feel free to do so (as well as add to it...) or I will on Wednesday evening.  Yes, we
will certainly update to the Tomcat 7 plugin -- my coworker has put in lots of changes in
the upcoming 2.1 release of that plugin, we're just awaiting when he has time to release it.
 (We can use the current Tomcat 7 plugin, it's just much more limited than the upcoming 2.1
one.)  We are at the "mvn clean package" or "mvn clean install" level -- namely the tests
are all running fine (may still be a hiccup in one or two of the Stress Test cases, I was
unable to replicate today.)  

I think instead of tomcat:exec-war, tomcat:run-war is preferred because (1) it still uses
an embedded Tomcat (no local tomcat needed) but (2) it uses the very same WAR that you would
have if you deployed it on Tomcat standalone.  But we can configure both.

Upcoming Work (anybody, feel free to jump in where you'd like):
1.) Populate the Maven war plugin defined in this pom.xml with the items needed for the WAR,
to get something that can be placed on Tomcat.  Goal: for the WAR that mvn clean installs
to run OOTB on a standalone Tomcat (if not yet via tomcat:run-war).
2.) Active the Selenium plugin to run the webtests (I think 1 before 2 here because I'm guessing
Selenium on Maven will use the very same WAR that we output for deployment to Tomcat.)
3.) Mavenize the project folder structure so we have less work to do in the maven-antrun-plugin,
as well as needing to define nonstandard locations in the <build> (sourceDirectory,
testSourceDirectory, and resources areas) -- if we do any of this, the ant build.xml file
will need to be reconfigured to the new locations so it continues to work.
4.) (Eventually) Convert the tests to JUnit 4.x, and (I suspect) the web tests will have a
new * naming to indicate they are integrated tests (i.e., run after a WAR is created)
-- I'm a little bit hazy here.
5.) Maven Rat plugin added to pom.
6.) Whatever Coburtura and other deployment stuff needs to be configured.
7.) You had a more advanced folder structure you were thinking of moving to...

Once the pom.xml is in the source repo, anytime we make a change to the build.xml -- new dependencies,
rearranging whatever, we will need to run "mvn clean install" *after* an "ant clean" just
to check if the pom.xml also needs updating.  The build.xml is still our official build until
we retire it in favor of Maven.

> Hello there, I was hoping to maybe one day contribute to the JSPWiki project and after
having checked out the trunk code and played around somewhat I was thinking it would be very
nice if this project used Maven.
> I'm sure most of you are familiar with Maven in one way or another, you might even have
a really good reason for not doing this to JSPWiki.
