Subject RE: [EXTERNAL] RE: profile activation with multiple conditions
Date Tue, 10 Nov 2015 22:55:07 GMT
Thanks. I was hoping that it would evaluate the file-based activation per project. I was treating
it as a separate issue than the multiple conditions. But I think what you're saying is that
the profile activation happens once for the whole reactor, and not per project within the
reactor. I gather that you're saying if the keystore file doesn't exist when I first run maven,
then the keystore profile will be activated for all projects in the reactor. Is that correct?
I'm still seeing the keystore profile activate from the property alone even if the keystore
file already exists before I run the mvn command. So that still suggests that it's doing an
or of the conditions rather than an and. Running 'mvn -N -X help:active-profiles -Djarsigner.keystore.scm.url'
isn't giving any debug info on the profile activation unfortunately. 

My goal here is to have as much of the build process as possible self-contained in the POM
files and executed from a single mvn command.
