Apache Maven Invoker Plugin Version 2.0.0 Released

| Comments

The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache Maven Invoker Plugin, version 2.0.0.

The Invoker Plugin is used to run a set of Maven projects. The plugin can determine whether each project execution is successful, and optionally can verify the output generated from a given project execution.

This plugin is in particular handy to perform integration tests for other Maven plugins. The Invoker Plugin can be employed to run a set of test projects that have been designed to assert certain features of the plugin under test.

You should specify the version in your project’s plugin configuration:

</plugin>

Important Note: This Release is intended for the bug fix MINVOKER-187 and in this relationship is was necessary to upgrade the JDK minimum to JDK 1.6. This was the reason for the version upgrade to 2.0.0.

Making GitHub Page for MojoHaus Plugins

Manual Site Deployment to GitHub

Unfortunately the Mojo Codehaus organization has closed their doors. In consequence all projects had to move to a new home. The Mojo Codehaus Maven plugins had to move as well so after the transition of the code etc. onto Github and the newly created The MojoHaus organization we need to get all the sites back online which contains the documentation of the plugins.

During the transition the Subversion repositories have been migrated to Git repositories.

So now the questions how to get back the old documentation and which approach should be followed to make further deployment of the site to GitHub pages as simple as possible.
