Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-1943) MavenProject::getParent() returns a MavenProject that is NOT interpolated
Date Sun, 08 Jan 2006 11:52:01 GMT
    [ http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-1943?page=comments#action_55192 ] 

John Allen commented on MNG-1943:
---------------------------------

Brett,

re 'a rare case', obviously my familiarity with these internal APIs and there usage is greatly
limited so I will defer to your expertese but in general I would have thought that if someone
is using an accessor to retreive a value they will want the cooked version of that 'property'
and not an internal/meta representation of it, after all what use is ${foo.bar} to the developer
who has called getUrl()? 

I'll keep a keen eye out for your MSITE-71 code as I have a number of plugins that i've had
to make reactor dependent in order to gain access to properly interpolated parent model data.

re 'integration tests' - yep, thats exactly what i meant :)

> Plugin developers repeatedly use ${project}.getParent().someMethod() yet getParent()
returns a project that has not been interpolated. This obviously needs to be fixed but may
I also suggest that all plugin acceptance testing is revisted to ensure that the tests use
POMs that are littered with property expressions and not literals.
