XMvn is a set of extensions for Apache Maven that can be used to manage system artifact repository and use it to resolve Maven artifacts in offline mode. It also provides Maven plugins to help with creating RPM packages containing Maven artifacts.
XMvn is free software. You can redistribute and/or modify it under the terms of Apache License Version 2.0.
XMvn was written by Mikolaj Izdebski.
Some parts of XMvn require Gradle, which is not available in Maven Central repository. Therefore the first time you build XMvn you'll need to download and install required dependencies into Maven local repository by running the following command:
mvn -f libs install
After Gradle is available in your local repository you'll be able to build XMvn using standard Maven commands, or import it into IDEs like Eclipse.
In some scenarios, like automated builds or continous integration, it
may be useful to download Gradle libraries and build XMvn in one step.
This can be achieved by activating libs profile (
mvn -P libs ...).
This profile is activated automatically when CI environmental variable
is set to true, for example on TravisCI.
XMvn author believes that storing Eclipse project files together with code is generally a bad idea. Instead, Eclipse project files and settings are provided in a separate git branch.
To add XMvn Eclipse project files to existing git working tree, run:
git --git-dir .eclipse init git --git-dir .eclipse remote add -f origin git://git.fedorahosted.org/git/xmvn.git git --git-dir .eclipse --work-tree . checkout eclipse ln -sf ../../.gitignore_eclipse .eclipse/info/exclude
If you prefer to use Github repo, use the following git URL instead:
To spawn a shell with Eclipse repo set as default you can run:
XMvn is a community project, new contributotrs are welcome. The most straightforward way to introduce new features is writting them yourself. The preferred way to requests features and report bugs is Red Hat Bugzilla: http://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=fedora&component=xmvn
The easiest way to get support is asking on IRC -- #fedora-java on freenode. You can also write to Fedora Java list firstname.lastname@example.org or directly to XMVn maintainers email@example.com.
