Subject [jira] [Created] (MTOMCAT-191) Return the "redeploy" goal to the Maven plugin
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2012 18:37:09 GMT
Glen Mazza created MTOMCAT-191:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Return the "redeploy" goal to the Maven plugin
                 Key: MTOMCAT-191
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MTOMCAT-191
             Project: Apache Tomcat Maven Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Glen Mazza
            Priority: Minor


Best to add the "redeploy" goal to the tomcat7 plugin, to eliminate the need for the user
to have to remember/google the "-Dmaven.tomcat.update=true" string or have to inefficiently
call mvn tomcat7:undeploy and mvn tomcat7:deploy sequentially.  mvn tomcat:redeploy generally
gets much more use during testing/debugging/development than mvn tomcat:deploy, and also acts
like mvn tomcat:deploy if the WAR isn't there anyway.

This would also benefit archetype/tutorial writers by no longer requiring them to hardcode
the <update>true</update> configuration setting in the pom.xml for the deploy
goal at a risk of overriding a potential safety mechanism of having tomcat7:deploy fail if
the WAR is already there.
