Subject [jira] Created: (MPMD-99) Report doesn't reflect the real PMD version used
Date Thu, 04 Jun 2009 17:24:42 GMT
Report doesn't reflect the real PMD version used

                 Key: MPMD-99
             Project: Maven 2.x PMD Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: PMD
    Affects Versions: 2.4
            Reporter: Henri Tremblay

If the PMD dependency is overloaded to a new version of PMD (by having a dependency section
attached to the plugin definition in the pom.xml), PMD won't show the real PMD version used.

This is because, the version shown following the "The following document contains the results
of" on the html report is taken from PMD.VERSION which is inlined by the compiler at compilation
and so is always 4.2.2.

The solution is to use the one in the pmd.xml header (<pmd version="4.2.5" timestamp="2009-06-04T18:29:18.945">)
which is always right.
