Subject [jira] (MNG-5743) Add support for splitted POMs
Date Mon, 09 Mar 2015 17:41:18 GMT

    [ https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-5743?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=364699#comment-364699

Paul Benedict commented on MNG-5743:
------------------------------------

Maven uses XPP3 to consume XML. but I don't know if that can process XInclude directives.
XInclude is the definitive way of breaking down a big file into little files. If you really
want this feature, I'd say go down the direction of making sure such support exists in Maven's
XML parser.

>             Project: Maven
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Design, Patterns & Best Practices
>    Affects Versions: Issues to be reviewed for 4.x

> Please add the possibility to split a POM into multiple files. A huge POM is difficult
to maintain and it is also difficult to navigate through a huge POM. 
> So it would be nice to have the possibility to split a POM into multiple files.
> This could be achived by adding an {{include}} directive or by supporting configuration
directory as suggested in [Optional support for splitting up pom.xml in multiple files|http://docs.codehaus.org/x/BgSV].
> Adding this feature would be help to promoted Maven in new projects. Futhermore it would
be helpful for all maintaining large Maven based projects.
