Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-3595) Changes made to project resolved artifacts are overriden when a plugin uses @requiresDependencyResolution
Date Wed, 03 Jun 2009 02:04:42 GMT


Nick Pellow commented on MNG-3595:

Bump - has there been any decision as to the best way to move forward? This issue is rather
limiting to Clover and any other plugins which create classified artifacts.
What about applying Jerome's patch to Maven, and seeing what breaks? I am guessing not a lot
would, since it is an extra plugin point, and is backward compatible with previous functionality.

> clover:instrument mojo creates instrumented artifacts and attaches them with a 'clover'
> It forks a lifecycle [1][2] and which triggers clover:intrumentInternal which tries to
change the project direct and transitive dependencies after 'swizzling' them [3] (replacing
normal artifacts with their clovered ones). This in theory would allow to build clovered WAR
and EAR, i.e. WAR/EAR containing all available clovered dependencies.
> Unfortunately maven handles direct and transitive dependencies differently [4]. While
direct dependencies are somewhat preserved (the code comments references clover), transitive
dependencies are re-resolved, and thus the results of the swizzling operation are lost as
soon as a plugin requiresDependencyResolution in a further part of the lifecycle.
> I've managed to hack maven and clover:instrument to work together by allowing a plugin
to attach some sort of "dependency resolution post processing" operation [5].
> In the case of clover:instrument, the swizzling is then registered in the maven project
and re-performed each time the artifacts are re-resolved.
> I am not very fond of this solution, but it seems to work for us on the attached example.
I will further test the patch this week on a large scale project.
> I would like to discuss ways to solve this interaction, whether the clover plugin should
be implemented differently or if maven should have some sort of support for this use case.
