Subject Re: How to define properties in a parent pom that are referenced in a child pom relative to the parent, not the child?
Date Thu, 15 Aug 2013 20:38:52 GMT
You're right. You shouldn't access things from another module this way.

You could indeed package your dependency as a standard one, or even create
a dedicated plugin) that could use that dependency or even the dirty
decompression work ;)).

to store the phantomjs executable in a parent pom along with a path setting
relative to that.  When it's referenced from a child pom, I need the path
to be relative to the parent pom, not the child pom.  I have a similar
problem with other common resources that are needed for the test
infrastructure.  I browsed through the references that describe Maven
properties, but I didn't see anything that might help me with this.
