Subject Re: Need help with upgrading a plugin
Date Fri, 29 Oct 2004 06:52:45 GMT
As a quick and dirty fix I add the following goal to the maven.xml of
our projects and tell people to run it if they get plugin problems

<goal name="antelope:upgradePlugins">
		<j:forEach var="dep" items="${pom.dependencies}">
				<j:if test="${dep.type =='plugin'}">
					<maven:get plugin="${dep.artifactId}" property="plugin" 
						var="plugin" />
					
						<ant:echo> 
###################################################################### 
Fetching ${dep.artifactId} Plugin You may have to run your goal again 
###################################################################### 
				</ant:echo>
						<j:set var="groupId" value="${dep.groupId}"/>
						<j:set var="artifactId" value="${dep.artifactId}"/>
						<j:set var="version" value="${dep.version}"/>
						<attainGoal name="plugin:download"/>
					</j:if>

		</j:forEach>		
	</goal>
