Hi Mary,


I think you are looking for the scm:bootstrap goal.


It also seems like you might be misunderstanding the way to use Maven (understandably, due
to your experience with Ant):


Ant, AFAIK, is basically a way of expressing scripts.

Maven, however, describes the project so that plugins can do the work previously done by your


With this in mind, I think you should be doing the following:

Create a POM _in_ your project, so that building it will work (locally, independent of the
source-fetching problem)


Then, for your fetch+build problem, do the following:

*	Either bootstrap from the POM (fetch the tag's POM manually, then exec mvn scm:bootstrap
on it), this will require you to:

	*	Setup the scm elements (<scm><connection>scm:svn:svn://host....</</)
in the POM.
	*	Fill in the scm plugin configuration so it knows what goals to run (if not the default


*	Or bootstrap manually, by specifying the needed elements on the command line (mvn scm:bootstrap
-Dparam=value ...)

Objet : SCM and CVS Export


I am new to Maven2, and but am an experienced Ant user.  I am trying to write a pom that will
do the following:

1.  Export source from CVS repository based on a tag

2.  Compile and package the exported source.


I have 2 problems.

1.  When I export the source from CVS it creates a duplicate folder structure.  See below...



             <!-- <configuration>























The exported source ends up in target\exported-sources\target\exported-sources.  I would expect
that it would end up in target/exported-sources.

The working directory indicated at this time is:  Working directory: C:\Projects\Maven\cimp-app\target\exported-sources
(which is now empty except for a new target directory.


2.  What I really want to happen at this point is for the remainder of the build to operate
on the exported sources, but that is not happening.  I end up having to run my mvn package
command separately on the pom in the target\exported-sources\target\exported-sources.  With
ant, I did not have this issue, and I think I am stuck in some wrong-thinking about how to
use maven2.


Any suggestions would be appreciated.
