Properties Metadata Maven Plugin

This maven plugin allows the user to add metadata to the pom, during release.

Example :

Provided you launch the maven release plugin through Jenkins (or at least have the environment variables BUILD_URL and SVN_REVISION set), the released pom will have 3 new properties added to the properties tag :


Those metadatas are used by the Nexus Dependency Management Plugin

How to build :

Simply clone this repo and run mvn clean install

Is it in Maven central ? :

No, you will have to add Terracotta maven repositories to your pom.xml :


How to use :

The plugin is org.terracotta.maven.plugins:properties-metadata-maven-plugin and it has two goals: set and clear.

You can try

mvn org.terracotta.maven.plugins:properties-metadata-maven-plugin:set


mvn org.terracotta.maven.plugins:properties-metadata-maven-plugin:clear

on the command line to get a feel of what modifications are going to be made to the pom.

The way it was designed to be used is to hook in to the release plugin's lifecyle by adding those properties to the Release Plugin's config (look for "Release goals and options" and "DryRun goals and options" in Jenkins):

-DpreparationGoals="clean verify org.terracotta.maven.plugins:properties-metadata-maven-plugin:set" -DcompletionGoals="org.terracotta.maven.plugins:properties-metadata-maven-plugin:clear" -DcheckModificationExcludeList=pom.xml

You can read the maven release plugin documentation for more info on the preparationGoals and completionGoals you can hook to during release:prepare
