Testing

Here's how you can help us test the distribution.

Download a snapshot of the distribution assemblies:

Configure a <repository> for Maven 2:

        <repository>
           <id>apache.snapshots</id>
           <name>Apache Snapshot Repository</name>
           <url>http://people.apache.org/repo/m2-snapshot-repository</url>
        </repository>

And declare a dependency on the 1.1.4.1 snapshots:

        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.myfaces.core</groupId>
            <artifactId>myfaces-api</artifactId>
            <version>1.1.4.1-SNAPSHOT</version>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.myfaces.core</groupId>
            <artifactId>myfaces-impl</artifactId>
            <version>1.1.4.1-SNAPSHOT</version>
        </dependency>

Note: Maven 2.0.4 will not download a new version if one is already present in your local repository. You will need to delete $M2_REPO/org/apache/myfaces/core to force Maven to download the new version. (Usually, $M2_REPO is <your home directory>/.m2/repository .)

Test your application, then, let us know the results (good or bad!) on dev -at- myfaces.apache.org. (You must be subscribed to post. See: http://myfaces.apache.org/mail-lists.html.)

Deployment

To deploy the api and impl jars, including -sources and -javadocs, to http://people.apache.org/repo/m2-snapshot-repository:

   cd /path/to/CORE_1_1_4_1
   mvn deploy -Pgenerate-assembly

To build and publish the -src and -bin assemblies to people.apache.org:

   cd /path/to/CORE_1_1_4_1
   mvn install -Pgenerate-assembly
   cd assembly
   mvn assembly:assembly
   scp target/assembly/out/* people.apache.org:/www/people.apache.org/builds/myfaces/core-1.1.x

To fix permissions:

   ssh people.apache.org 'chmod -Rf g+w /www/people.apache.org/repo/m2-snapshot-repository/org/apache/myfaces'
   ssh people.apache.org 'chmod -Rf g+w /www/people.apache.org/builds/myfaces'
