Subject [ANN] Maven Invoker Plugin 1.6 Released
Date Thu, 24 May 2012 20:11:21 GMT
The Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Maven Invoker
Plugin, version 1.6

The Invoker Plugin is used to run a set of Maven projects. The plugin
can determine whether each project execution is successful, and
optionally can verify the output generated from a given project

This plugin is in particular handy to perform integration tests for
other Maven plugins. The Invoker Plugin can be employed to run a set
of test projects that have been designed to assert certain features of
the plugin under test.

You should specify the version in your project's plugin configuration:
