Subject Base Abstract Mojo
Date Thu, 17 Jun 2010 17:07:36 GMT
Dear all,

I created a base abstract mojo like this:

public abstract class MyAbstractMojo extends AbstractMojo {

     * @parameter expression="${outputDirectory}"
    protected File outputDirectory;

     * {@inheritDoc}
    public void execute() throws MojoExecutionException {


    /* derived classes just implement this */
    protected abstract void executeImpl() throws MojoExecutionException;

When I try to access parameter outputDirectory from a derived mojo, I
get a NullPointerException... so the question is: how can I define a
parameter in base class and then use it an all the derived classes?
