Subject RE: How can I recursively build -SNAPSHOT dependencies present in the filesystem but outside the reactor?
Date Fri, 15 Jun 2012 15:36:45 GMT
Thanks Thorsten and Ron,

Some additional background:

We're a team of about 25 developers, and 100 projects/modules. All developers are familiar
with the whole suite of apps, and move freely between projects. They want to be able to work
on several projects locally without taking in unwanted -SNAPSHOT changes from our repo (Artifactory).

In our case, developers simply want to build apps together (usually two or three together
depending on the scope of the development task) to ensure the build accurately reflects the
code checked out in the developer's workspace. 

We have Jenkins, which builds our projects on SCM commit, and builds dependents. This isn't
applicable for individual developer workspace builds.

Ron - the burden of checking out the whole workspace isn't a big deal for us, and we still
"peg" individual dependencies to release versions as necessary. My original question concerned
workspace builds where we intend to use limited number of -SNAPSHOT dependencies to trigger
a  selectively-recursive build across multiple projects.

I am currently building a plugin "maven-r-plugin" which internally uses Maven.execute(MavenExecutionResult)
and a file-based index of in-house artifacts to prototype a solution to this problem. Suggestions
of better solutions would be welcome.
