-------------------------------------

             Summary: create @Requirement annotation to replace @Component (should be deprecated)
                 Key: MPLUGIN-323
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MPLUGIN-323
             Project: Maven Plugin Tools
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: maven-plugin-annotations, maven-plugin-tools-javadoc
    Affects Versions: 3.5
            Reporter: Hervé Boutemy


injecting a Plexus component into a mojo is currently marked through {{@Component}} annotation
(or {{@component}} javadoc tag)

This "component" term is misleading for 2 reasons:
1. in plugin descriptor, it creates a {{<requirement>}} XML element: http://maven.apache.org/ref/3-LATEST/maven-plugin-api/plugin.html#class_requirement

2. in Plexus, injecting is marked with {{@Requirement}} annotation, when {{@Component}} is
used to define a component: http://codehaus-plexus.github.io/plexus-containers/plexus-component-annotations/

This annotation creates great confusion for years, then even if Plexus is being dropped for
javax.inject, fixing this misleading terms would be beneficial IMHO
