Subject [jira] Commented: (WAGON-258) SSH / SCP -o options should be quoted
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2009 05:05:13 GMT


Timothy Riley commented on WAGON-258:

I have tested the suggested workaround by building my own 1.0-beta-5-MYCOMPANY-1 version of
the wagon-ssh-external with the quotation fix but this does not work.

Steps I followed:
  1. Extracted wagon-ssh-external-1.0-beta-5-source.jar
  2. Modified ScpExternalWagon line 251 to correct the quotation issue
  3. Copied wagon-ssh-external-1.0-beta-5.pom to pom.xml and modified the version to 1.0-beta-5-MYCOMPANY-1
  4. Modified my demo project pom file with the suggestion in the workaround
  5. Executed mvnDebug -X deploy

The result is my code is never executed even though maven debug clearly says it is selected
for runtime. My theory is that there is a classloading issue. With the release of maven-2.1.0
the maven-2.1.0-uber.jar came packaged with wagon ssh external. Because of this the ScpExternalWagon
in maven-2.1.0-uber.jar is used over my version.

I hope my theory turns out to be incorrect because this would mean wagon ssh external could
not be updated without updating maven.
