Subject [jira] [Commented] (MJLINK-49) Add support for single maven projects
Date Fri, 16 Oct 2020 01:51:00 GMT


Leif Gruenwoldt commented on MJLINK-49:

I found this example just now that if I'm reading it right shows support for single maven
projects works. I haven't tried it yet.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven JLink Plugin
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.0-alpha-1
>            Reporter: Leif Gruenwoldt
>            Priority: Major
> This initially took me a while to figure out, but the documentation says the plugin currently
won't work for a single maven project and requires a multi-module project. To me this is a
huge assumption for Java projects. For example not a single one of my projects is multi-module
and I rarely see other multi-module projects, so this seems like a large limitation right
> My work around for this limitation is to run the jlink command outside of mvn, without
the jlink plugin. But I'd love to perform the jlink step within my pom.xml if single maven
project support were added,
> "Usually you will use the Maven JLink Plugin to create a Run Time Image from one or more
modules within a multi module build. In other words it is not possible to create a Run Time
Image from a single Maven Project within the same single Maven Project. Let us assume you
have a multi module structure which contains two modules"
