Subject Re: Multi modules and profiles
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2011 08:26:55 GMT
I am wondering if the OP is hitting the "must have a named profile in
the aggregation root" that I have observed, but not determined whether
it is a bug or a feature.

If I have a multi-module project and one module 'web' has a profile
called "run".

mvn -Prun clean install -f web/pom.xml

will activate the "run" profile

mvn -Prun clean install

does not seem to activate the "run" profile unless I put an empty
profile called "run" in the root of aggregation

Now of course I'm doing some seriously fancy sh1t and the above is
simplified, so it might not be that clear-cut...

but none the less, I am wondering if the OP is seeing something like that
