Notes on the MyFaces Core 1.2.2 Release




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

Download a nightly build of the distribution assemblies:

Configure a <repository> for Maven 2:

           <name>Apache Snapshot Repository</name>

And declare a dependency on the 1.2.1 snapshots:


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- (You must be subscribed to post. See:

I was running the needed tasks to get the 1.2.2 release of Apache
MyFaces core out.

Please note that this vote concerns all of the following parts:
 1. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.shared" v3.0.2  [1]
 2. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.core" v1.2.2  [1]

The artifacts are deployed to my private Apache account ([1]).

Please take a look at the "1.2.2" artifacts and vote!

Please note: This vote is "majority approval" with a minimum of three
+1 votes (see [3]).

[ ] +1 for community members who have reviewed the bits
[ ] +0
[ ] -1 for fatal flaws that should cause these bits not to be released,
 and why..............
