Subject Re: Maven Microsoft Windows PowerShell
Date Fri, 18 Apr 2008 14:39:18 GMT
Generally if you are using Powershell for Maven, svn etc you end up
having to escape any arguments which start with a dash (-).  The escape
character in Powershell is a backtick.  So you end up with mvn
archetype:create `-DgroupId=blah `-DartifactId=blah.  There's probably
an easier way but that works for me.  I seem to remember posting on this
list about this when Powershell first came out (1.0) and I now think it
is more of a general Powershell thing than anything to do with Maven,
especially as I get the same thing with Subversion.  I've scripted most
of our build with Powershell on top of Maven, so it certainly works with
2.0.9 if you add in the escaping.

Martin.

Subject: Re: Maven Microsoft Windows PowerShell

Hi James,

I never tried PowerShell before. Just thought that it will work out of 
the box.

The suggestion with the quotes (also mentioned by Raphaël Piéroni) just 
worked fine:

mvn.bat archetype:create "-DgroupId=com.mycompany.app"
-DartifactId=my-app

I think there are also other issues regarding Maven, PowerShell and 
quoting. I will make some tests and report further results here.

Regards

Marc Weidner
