Subject jar override paths
Date Tue, 24 Aug 2004 15:17:41 GMT
Hi Everyone-

I'm using the jar override property to use local jars in two projects.  
One project uses the reactor to call the build of the other project.  
The problem is that each project includes a property 
"maven.myproject.jars" specifying the location of the jar files.  In one file, this reads:

maven.myproject.jars = ../../../../lib/jars

While in another it reads:

maven.myproject.jars = ../lib/jars

I then specify my jar override jars as in the following:

maven.myproject.myjar = ${maven.lib.jars}/myjar.jar

One project.xml inherits from the other, inheriting all properties.  As 
a result, only one of these directories works depending on where you 
are.  If I go to one project, I have to uncomment or comment out the 
"maven.myproject.jars" property from the other project.  I've tried 
using the jelly tag to make these paths absolute, but the jar resolution 
and "download" happens before any code in maven.xml is executed, so this 
just doesn't work.  Can I maybe declare the properties somewhere other 
than  Any advice would be much appreciated.
