Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-2675) add getModules() method which return a MavenProject List instead of module name String list
Date Wed, 03 Jun 2009 05:44:42 GMT


Jörg Hohwiller commented on MNG-2675:

I'd rather suggest to return a List<Module> where Module still has 

public String getPath()

but also 

public MavenProject getProject()

Now there should be a way to do getProject() even if the module is NOT part of the reactor.
This should be done via lazy evaluation. Therefore an additional method should be added
to either test if the MavenProject is NOT yet available (boolean isProjectAvailable()) or
method that ensures to load it (boolean loadProject()) while getProject() will return null
before loadProject() was executed in case the MavenProject is not yet available.
I personally prefer the first suggestion.

> Hi,

> I have a master project with modules which have some modules or project.
> Until now, i get the modules list with project.getModules() method and i compare each
module name with the project name that i get with project.getCollectedProjects() method.
> And for each MavenProject object i retreive, i repeat the last algorithm (getModules()
