Subject [jira] [Created] (MASSEMBLY-847) attachmentClassifier shouldn't throw exception
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2017 21:10:24 GMT
David Hoffer created MASSEMBLY-847:

             Summary: attachmentClassifier shouldn't throw exception
                 Key: MASSEMBLY-847
             Project: Maven Assembly Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: David Hoffer

We want to use this plugin to generate a zip of all the javadoc binaries in the reactor so
we set attachmentClassifier to javadocs.  This would work perfect except it throws an exception
every time it can't find a javadoc artifact.  There are lots of modules, ears, wars, pom/resource
type modules that generally do not have any javadocs.  This means we have to add an exclude
item for each one of them.  This has become unmanageable as one has to remember to add to
the exclude list every time a new module like this is created.

This plugin should be changed so that it does not throw if some are missing.  If this behavior
needs to be configurable that is fine.
