Maven plugins versions

The parent pom defines in a set of properties all recommended versions of maven plugins to use.


This isn't recommended but could be useful to use a new version of a plugin not yet available in the parent POM or to workaround a bug by using another version. In all cases don not forget to report to us the change you need. If it's good for one project, it could be useful for others.

Each project/module can override a version of a plugin to use a different from the one defined in parent. For example to change version of sonar-packaging-maven-plugin you can use following code snippet:



Release profilereleaseDeactivated by default. Activated during release. Can be activated with -PreleaseGenerates javadoc artifacts.
Integration testsintegration-testsDeactivated by default. Can be activated with -Pintegration-testsLaunch integration tests from JUnit using the failsafe plugin.
