Subject Re: Setting properties in pom.xml from command line
Date Fri, 15 Apr 2011 11:24:59 GMT
Anders,

What other suggestion do you have for testing that a something works

I completely agree that running 'install' let alone 'deploy' with a
profile that changes a version is a really bad idea. But it's an
effective mechanism for compatibility testing.
