Notes on the MyFaces Build Tools Builder Plugin 1.0.8 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 1.0.8</name>

then use myfaces-builder-plugin:

        ..... some stuff ....

myfaces core 1.1.x, 1.2.x, 2.0.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.

8. ANNOUNCE mail

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

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 Plugin is available in the central Maven repository under
Group ID "org.apache.myfaces.buildtools".
