Notes on the MyFaces Build Tools Builder Plugin 1.0.3 Release




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

Add this to your pom.xml (a node inside <project> )

        <name>Test repository for myfaces-builder-plugin 1.0.3</name>

then use myfaces-builder-plugin:

        ..... some stuff ....

myfaces core 1.1.x, 1.2.x and tomahawk use myfaces-builder-plugin so the most easy way is modify its pom (api/pom.xml, impl/pom.xml for example) for use it, then mvn install and check the generated artifacts.

4. Ask for vote


I was running the needed tasks to get the 1.0.3 release of Apache
MyFaces Builder Plugin out.

This artifacts are necessary to release myfaces archetypes and make
trinidad-sandbox use myfaces-builder-plugin (see TRINIDAD-1409 for details).
After release this artifacts, myfaces-core and tomahawk will be updated
to use this version.

Testing instructions are available at [3].

Some velocity templates where added and others synchronized to the versions used
in myfaces core, tomahawk or myfaces commons. Several bug fixes has been done on 
some java annotations and on plugins. Below there is a list of the changes 
included on this release:


MYFACES-2168 Add documentation for myfaces-builder-plugin


MYFACES-2236 Allow define deferredValueType for component/converter/validator for tag @JSFProperty when generate tld using myfaces-builder-plugin

MYFACES-2159 Update myfaces builder plugin to use Qdox 1.9.1

Please note that this vote concerns all of the following parts:
 1. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.buildtools" v1.0.3 (only myfaces-builder-plugin, myfaces-builder-annotations, myfaces-plugin-parent) [1]

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

Please take a look at the "1.0.3" 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..............

8. ANNOUNCE mail

The Apache MyFaces team is pleased to announce the release of
Apache MyFaces Builder Plugin and Annotations 1.0.3.

Apache MyFaces Builder Plugin is a maven plugin, used internally in
other projects like myfaces core and tomahawk for generate component classes,
tag classes, faces-config files, .tld files and facelets taglib files. In other
words, its several maven goals provide a component kit for generate jsf
components with minimal effort.

Apache Myfaces Builder Annotations is a set of annotations used by 
Myfaces Builder Plugin to define the metadata.

Apache MyFaces Builder Plugin and Annotations is available in the central Maven repository under
Group ID "org.apache.myfaces.buildtools".
