Subject reactor problem contd
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2003 03:33:13 GMT

there was a thread a few days ago relating to a goal executed via the reactor 
failing with the error "unknown goal".  The same goal executed by the reactor 
would execute fine when operated on a single project.

In addition to this, I'm not sure if this is the same problem or not but.....

I see exactly the same problem when I have dependencies to plugins.  When I 
remove the dependencies, the reactor problems go away. I have checked that the 
plugins installed and those available via the repository are identical.

In summary.

The multiproject:install goal is called.  this calls <type>:install.  I have an 
ejb:ejb pregoal.  This calls goals in my plugins.

with plugins installed & no dependencies to plugins
multiproject:install executes fine, individual ejb:install, war:install etc. 
work fine.

with plugins available via dependencies
multiproject:install fails with unknown goal, individual ejb:install, 
war:install etc, work fine.

Does this help pinpoint where the problem might be.  Might be a red-herring as 
when I encountered the problem originally (Sunday) I hadn't started using 
dependencies to plugins
