Subject [jira] Created: (ARCHETYPE-271) archetype create swallows exception information

archetype create swallows exception information

                 Key: ARCHETYPE-271
             Project: Maven Archetype
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.0-alpha-4
            Reporter: Pablo Graña
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: jdom-error-message.txt

The contains:

        catch ( JDOMException exc )
            throw new IOException( "Cannot parse the POM by JDOM" );

all exc info is lost. My particular problem was that the archetype pom contained:

#set( $symbol_dollar = '$' )
#set( $symbol_lt = '<' )
#set( $symbol_gt = '>' )

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

and the space before the xml declaration was throwing the previous exception.

I attach a very simple patch to make it easier to track these errors. It was generated with
svn diff > jdom-error-message.txt against maven-archetype-2.0-alpha-4.
