Subject Re: maven-antrun-plugin in interactive mode
Date Tue, 12 Mar 2013 10:45:53 GMT
Please read my answer to a similar question on stack overflow:

When you use antrun to set properties, you are setting "Mojo injected
properties" to use the terminology of my answer. Such properties are only
available within the scope of the currently executing module and only after
the execution of the injecting mojo. Those properties are not available to
child modules. If you look at the reactor order in the build plan, you will
also probably see that the module you are executing this in is running
after the child modules, so even if you could "trick" maven to make this
available to the child modules, it would be too late in any case
