Plugin Documentation

This report describes goals, parameters details, requirements and sample usage of this plugin.


Goals available for this plugin:

Goal Description
hpi:assemble-dependencies Used to assemble transitive dependencies of plugins into one location.

Unlike other similar mojos in this plugin, this one traverses dependencies through its graph.

hpi:custom-war Builds a custom Jenkins war that includes all the additional plugins referenced in this POM.
hpi:generate-taglib-interface Generates the strongly-typed Java interfaces for Groovy taglibs.
hpi:help Display help information on maven-hpi-plugin.
Call mvn hpi:help -Ddetail=true -Dgoal=<goal-name> to display parameter details.
hpi:hpi Build a war/webapp.
hpi:hpl Generate .hpl file.
hpi:insert-test Insert default test suite.
hpi:jar Build a jar separate from the hpi goal. If you do not use this goal then the HpiMojo will generate a jar file anyway. Using this goal it is possible to customize the jar file that is built, e.g. shading dependencies, code signing, etc
hpi:list-plugin-dependencies List up all plugin dependencies declared in the project. Transitive plugin dependencies will not be listed.
hpi:record-core-location Keeps track of where core was built from, so plugins depending on a snapshot version of core can pick up changes without reload.
hpi:resolve-test-dependencies Places test-dependency plugins into somewhere the test harness can pick up.

See TestPluginManager.loadBundledPlugins() where the test harness uses it.

Additionally, it may adjust the classpath for surefire:test to run tests against different versions of various dependencies than what was configured in the POM.

hpi:run Runs Jenkins with the current plugin project.

This only needs the source files to be compiled, so run in the compile phase.

To specify the HTTP port, use -Djetty.port=PORT

hpi:test-hpl Generate .hpl file in the test class directory so that test harness can locate the plugin.
hpi:test-runtime Configure Surefire for the desired version of Java.
hpi:validate Make sure that we are running in the right environment.
hpi:validate-hpi Validates dependencies depend on older or equal core than the current plugin.
