has

many

advantages

No,

is

Finding a good location

The biggest pain is to get the repositories at a specific place, so it is isolated, i.e.

...

in

...

the

...

project-tree.

...

I

...

chose

...

"project/tools/maven-2.x.x"

...

to

...

have

...

the

...

complete

...

Maven

...

in.

...

So

...

the

...

most

...

logical

...

location

...

would

...

be

...

"project/tools/maven-2.x.x/repository".

...

So

...

I

...

copy

...

a

...

fresh

...

install

...

of

...

the

...

used

...

Maven

...

into

...

the

...

tools-dir.

...

Edit

...

settings.xml

...

In

...

project/tools/maven-2.x.x/config

...

you'll

...

find

...

settings.xml

...

which

...

needs

...

to

...

be

...

updated

...

to

...

have

...

the

...

current

...

repository-location

...

in

...

it.

...

Just

...

before

...

"</settings>"

...

we

...

put

No Format
"<localRepository>file://${MVN_HOME}/repository</localRepository>"

.

...

This

...

works,

...

because

...

config.xml

...

reads environment-variables.

...

If

...

you

...

found

...

this

...

page,

...

you

...

might

...

have

...

tried

...

i.e.

No Format
"${project.basedir}"

and

...

have

...

noted

...

it

...

is

...

not

...

set.

...


Edit pom.xml

...

The

...

POM

...

should

...

be

...

updated

...

to

...

use

...

the

...

local

...

repository:

Code Block
xml
xml
<repositories>
 <repositories> <repository>
    <id>local</id>
    <name>Local</name>
    <url>file://${project.basedir}/toolss/maven-2.x0.x9/repository</url>
  </repository>
</repositories>

Make

out

of

the

box

...

I

...

always

...

provide

...

two

...

files:

...

  • readme.txt

...

  • :

...

  • contains

...

  • project-description,

...

  • autors,

...

  • history

...

  • and

...

  • how

...

  • to

...

  • get

...

  • the

...

  • project

...

  • up-and-running

...

  • fast

...

  • ("mvn

...

  • eclipse:eclipse"

...

  • and

...

  • that

...

  • kind

...

  • of

...

  • things).

...

  • build.bat

...

  • /

...

  • build.sh

...

  • :

...

  • this

...

  • should

...

  • take

...

  • care

...

  • of

...

  • everything

...

  • to

...

  • build

...

  • the

...

  • project.

...

  • Optional:

...

  • JAVA_HOME

...

  • should

...

  • be

...

  • edited

...

  • to

...

  • point

...

  • to

...

  • a

...

  • JDK,

...

  • since

...

  • I

...

  • do

...

  • not

...

  • like

...

  • to

...

  • add

...

  • a

...

  • complete

...

  • JDK

...

  • into

...

  • the

...

  • tools-dir

...

  • and

...

  • assume

...

  • a

...

  • Java-developer

...

  • has

...

  • it

...

  • installed

...

  • on

...

  • his

...

  • machine.

...

  • I

...

  • just

...

  • do

...

  • a

...

  • check

...

  • if

...

  • "JAVA_HOME"

...

  • is

...

  • set.

...

  • When

...

  • the

...

  • customer

...

  • wants

...

  • a

...

  • source-CD,

...

  • I

...

  • make

...

  • an

...

  • exception.

...

Other

...

developers

...

will

...

understand

...

what

...

these

...

files

...

wil

...

do

...

and

...

probably

...

just

...

run

...

"build"

...

without

...

reading

...

the

...

.

...

Understand

...

and

...

remember

...

that

...

people

...

only

...

want

...

to

...

put

...

time

...

in

...

a

...

project,

...

when

...

they

...

think

...

it's

...

worth

...

it.

...

So

...

make

...

your

...

script

...

user-friendly

...

and

...

the

...

txt

...

very

...

short,

...

so

...

it

...

gives

...

you

...

a

...

chance

...

to

...

try

...

again.

...

The

...

build-script

...

sets

...

the

...

JAVA_HOME

...

(I

...

use

...

"rem

...

set

...

JAVA_HOME=<my

...

own

...

location>"

...

or

...

"#

...

export

...

JAVA_HOME=<my

...

own

...

location>"

...

to

...

give

...

a

...

hint)

...

and

...

MVN_HOME

...

(should

...

point

...

to

...

"%CD%/project/tools/maven-2.x.x"

...

or

...

"`pwd`/project/tools/maven-2.x.x")

...

and

...

calls

...

/project/tools/maven-2.x.x/bin/mvn.bat

...

or

...

/project/tools/maven-2.x.x/bin/mvn.sh

...

to

...

build

...

the

...

project

...

giving

...

the

...

developers-build

...

of

...

the

...

project.

...

Afterwards

...

it

...

show

...

which

...

Java-version

...

it

...

used

...

and

...

which

...

maven-location

...

was

...

used,

...

so

...

the

...

user

...

has

...

feedback

...

when

...

the

...

build

...

fails.
