Subject Converting SNAPSHOTS
Date Mon, 15 Nov 2004 20:10:11 GMT
Hi Gurus,
[using Maven version 1.0.1]
I am trying to use snapshots because we have nightly builds producing
artefacts that I would like us to depend upon rather than on some random
version located in the local repos!
My primary component (called SnapshotComponet) I specify as being of
currentVersion 2.0
In the secondary component (called DependOnSnapshot) that depends on it I
specify the dependency as SNAPSHOT
This all works and the SNAPSHOT gets downloaded every time I build! Great :)
However, when I want to release and run the goal convert-snapshots or
convert-snapshots-auto I expect the Pom of the depending secondary component
to get updated with a timestamp so that I might commit it to CVS in a
“freezed” immutable state - this dosent happen and nothing gets converted (a
new pom Is written but still with SNAPSHOT as version) and I am quite
confused as to why this is!
Isent  this what the goal is supposed to do for me?
Any suggestions as to where I might be thinking in the wrong way about
SNAPSHOTS - please let me know!
