Subject [jira] Commented: (MDEP-155) writing classpath into a file doesn't work anymore
Date Thu, 13 Mar 2008 14:09:30 GMT


Brian Fox commented on MDEP-155:

The docs are wrong, see here for the correct expression:

mdep is just a prefix used to keep the dependency values from conflicting with other plugins.
It is recommended that plugins do this, but most of them don't. You can always check the proper
expression on the goal page like shown above.
