What's new in XMvn 2.5.0
XMvn 2.5.0 was released on 2015-10-28. Most important changes
* Major features
* XMvn Gradle plugin
XMvn Gradle plugin was implemented in version 2.5.0. When
applied on a project, this plugin automatically configures
repositories in local mode, so that project dependencies can be
resolved from system repository. It also provides
<<<xmvnInstall>>> task, which can be used to install artifacts
produced by the build with XMvn Installer.
* Custom buildroot option for XMvn Subst
XMvn Subst now accepts a new option, <<<--root>>>, which
specifies buildroot from which XMvn should resolve artifacts, in
addition to standard locations. This option can be used for
symlinking JARs produced during build. (Bug: 1226251)
* Major bugfixes
* Builddep MOJO fixes
Builddep MOJO was rewritten from scratch. The new code is more
generic and supports many corner case in which the previous
version produced incorrect results (bugs: 1217422, 1217425,
* Minor features
* Warning when builddep MOJO is ran with pure Maven
XMvn builddep MOJO 2.5.0 will print a warning when it's ran
outsides of XMvn.
* Allowing manifacs injection for invalid JAR files
OpenJDK has a sanity check that prevents adding duplicate
entries to ZIP streams. When trying to inject manifests to JAR
files with duplicate entries XMvn would previously fail with
"ZipException: duplicate entry". XMvn 2.5.0 added a workaround
that allows manifest injection to such invalid JAR files.
* Minor bugfixes
* GradleResolver crash when resolving tools.jar
XMvn 2.5.0 fixes a bug that caused Gradle resolver crash when
trying to resolve tools.jar artifact.
* Crash when effective POM generation failed
XMvn 2.5.0 fixes a bug that caused crash with
NullPointerException uppon failure to generate effective POM.
* Slashes in effective POM names are replaced with dots
XMvn versions prior to 2.5.0 would try to create effective POM
files with artifactID as name, even if it contain slash
character. XMvn 2.5.0 fixes this bug.
* Other changes
