Subject [jira] (MSITE-690) Add new "process-reports" goal
Date Sat, 01 Jun 2013 10:58:03 GMT
Stephen Colebourne created MSITE-690:

             Summary: Add new "process-reports" goal
                 Key: MSITE-690
             Project: Maven 2.x and 3.x Site Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 3.3
            Reporter: Stephen Colebourne

AFAICT, maven builds a site by relying on other plugins to generate files in a specific HTML
format. For example, the PMD and Checkstyle plugins generate reports that include references
to "@import url("./css/maven-base.css");" and "${project.version}". The site plugin then post-processes
these files to do three things:
(a) add the css files,
(b) convert references like ${project.version}
(c) add in a generated menu structure with relative links

Propose adding a new goal "process-reports" that performs steps (a) and (b) only. Instead
of generating the index structure in step (c), it would simply remove the index and header
parts of the HTML file to create a simple *standalone* HTML file.

The aim of this improvement is to allow valid complete HTML files to be created without the
rest of the generated site (with the complications of relative links). This goal would simply
run in each project of the multi-module build independently, processing the resources it finds

Users wanting a checkstyle report could then run "mvn clean checkstyle:checkstyle-aggregator
site:process-reports". Today, "mvn clean checkstyle:checkstyle-aggregator" works OK but produces
half-complete HTML files.
