Subject [jira] Commented: (MECLIPSE-185) mvn eclipse:eclipse report 'Build Successful' even when generation fails
Date Fri, 24 Jul 2009 19:20:50 GMT


Jörg Hohwiller commented on MECLIPSE-185:

Just to give my 2 cents:

What if you just set a flag in such case and at the end of the build throw an exception if
the error-flag was set.
I am not sure if your Mojo is an @agregator or not...

My problem is NOT that the build continues but the SUCCESS message at the end. 
The log is quite large in my project and I often miss problems that occurred but scrolled
away faster than my eyes could cover. When I see SUCCESS I expect there was no problem.

Then the plugin still reports at the end Build successful, although no new .classpath file
was generated. Now ypu have to always verify the content of the output, to see if it was really
