Notes on the MyFaces Build Tools Builder Plugin 1.0.4 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 1.0.4</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 1.0.4 release of Apache
MyFaces Builder Plugin out.

This release includes some changes necessary to build myfaces 
core 2.0 branch (MYFACES-2304) and some other small enhancements.

Testing instructions are available at [3].

Below there is a list of the changes included on this release:

MYFACES-2400 Allow choose directories when building myfaces-metadata.xml with myfaces-builder-plugin
MYFACES-2377 Include global config parameters javadoc on myfaces-metadata using some myfaces builder plugin annotation
MYFACES-2373 Add a way to document event capabilities for components using myfaces builder plugin
MYFACES-2304 Annotate facelets stuff adding @JSFFaceletTag and @JSFFaceletAttribute to myfaces-builder-plugin

Please note that this vote concerns all of the following parts:
 1. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.buildtools" v1.0.4 (only myfaces-builder-plugin, myfaces-builder-annotations) [1]

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

Please take a look at the "1.0.4" 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..............

The Apache MyFaces team is pleased to announce the release of
Apache MyFaces Builder Plugin and Annotations 1.0.4.

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".
