Site Generation

Configuration

See Maven 3.x and site plugin

The main issue with Maven3 are the changes to site generation. The <reporting> section no longer works - maven-site-plugin is now configured in the <plugins> section of <build> with report plugins configured in the maven-site-plugin's configuration.

Merging site configuration items from a parent POM

There's an issue with inheriting the maven-site-plugin's configuration from a parent and merging it with a components configuration - See:

At the moment (i.e. 3.0-beta-2 of the maven-site-plugin) the fix is to add combine.children="append" (See FAQs-1) - its not 100% and I don't currently know whether this is the only/permanent solution or whether the maven team is going to fix this properly. You can see an example of this here

         <plugin>
            <artifactId>maven-site-plugin</artifactId>
            <configuration>
              <reportPlugins combine.children="append">
                ...
              </reportPlugins>
            </configuration>
         </plugin>
