> Currently, there is no way to set up a plugin to run every time I invoke maven on my
project, regardless of whether I'm executing a stand-alone goal or a lifecycle phase. For
example, I have a plugin that munges some project information and sets project properties
based on the results. I want to use these properties elsewhere in my project file. It would
be nice if I could set up this plugin to always be the first thing that executes when I invoke
maven on my project. I'm thinking something like the following:
> {noformat}
> <project>
>   <globalPlugins>
>     <plugin>
>       ...
>     </plugin>
>   </globalPlugins>
> </project>
> {noformat}
> These plugins obviously wouldn't support the phase and goal tags within executions.
> Another way to accomplish this would be to recognize a special phase called "global"
(or something similar) that would indicate a plugin that always runs first (i.e. before starting
the lifecycle or executing stand-alone goals). For example:
> {noformat}
> <project>
>   <plugins>
>     <plugin>
>       <groupId>foo</groupId>
>       <artifactId>bar</artifactId>
>       <executions>
>         <execution>
>           <phase>global</phase>
>           <goals>
>             <goal>baz</goal>
>           </goals>
>           <configuration>
>            ...
>           </configuration>
>         </execution>
>       </executions>
>     </plugin>
>   </plugins>
> </project>
> {noformat}
