Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6083) Maven 3.3.9 breaks release:perform by not including maven.config
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2016 01:50:21 GMT


Robert Patrick commented on MNG-6083:

It seems that at least a few others have complained over the years about the lack of functionality
for Maven toolchains.  As such, I have written a custom toolchain and plugin to make toolchains
work the way I hoped that they would.  Assuming I don't hit any snags, I will eliminate .mvn/maven.config
from my build and leverage the new "properties" toolchain type.  In case you are interested,
you can see what I have done at

> Our release process runs both our build and our integration tests.  The integration tests
rely on our project root directory's .mvn/maven.config file to run properly.  The maven.config
file is NOT checked into the source tree because it contains environment-specific values so
each developer has their own version of it on each machine on which they build.
> This has been working fine for months now but simply changing the version of Maven used
from 3.3.3 to 3.3.9 causes the build to break due to not having the -Ds defined in $PROJECT_ROOT/.mvn/maven.config.
> It appears that the release:perform goal checks out the release source in another location
and with Maven 3.3.9, the maven.config from the original location is not being used.  The
build specifies the release-plugin version so the difference seems to be in the core Maven
