Subject [jira] [Commented] (MCOMPILER-334) Missing configuration documentation
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2018 07:39:00 GMT


Paul Millar commented on MCOMPILER-334:

Yes, that's exactly the information I was after.

Sorry, it was completely unclear to me that the configuration options are goal-specific. 
Options appear to be mostly specified at the generic level (i.e., not within goal-specific
execution blocks).  For example, almost all the given examples are like this.

If I may suggest, perhaps dropping a throw-away sentence in the usage page might help point
other similarly confused people in the right direction.

In any case, feel free to close this ticket.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Compiler Plugin
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 3.5.1
>            Reporter: Paul Millar
>            Priority: Minor
> The [Usage page|] should
provide information on how to use this plugin.  However, there is almost no mention of the
available configuration options on this page.
> The navigation panel provides links to several example scenarios: [Compile Using A Different
[Compile Using -source and -target javac Options|],
etc.  These are (no doubt) very helpful for people solving those specific problems.  However,
there is apparently no page that provides the authoritative description of available configuration
> Please add a page that provides a list of available configuration options, their expected
formats, the default value (if that option is not specified), and the semantics if the value
is specified.
