Subject [jira] (MNG-5508) maven compiler plugin doesn't detect change in pom.xml
Date Thu, 29 Aug 2013 20:58:52 GMT
Jigar Joshi created MNG-5508:

             Summary: maven compiler plugin doesn't detect change in pom.xml
                 Key: MNG-5508
             Project: Maven 2 & 3
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Bootstrap & Build, Performance, Plugins and Lifecycle
    Affects Versions: 3.1.0
         Environment: any
            Reporter: Jigar Joshi
            Priority: Minor


we are using maven build to build around 200 project tree, change in one single module costs
building whole tree, to avoid it we switched to incremental build and I wrote a plugin that
will periodically do full clean build after configurable period of time


maven-compiler-plugin supports incremental compilation and only compiles the source that was
modified that is nice feature, however it is not quite working well in following cases

 - if there is a change in pom.xml (for example:change in dependency scope), it doesn't detect
it as change and doesn't recompile that and all effecting projects
