Apache Maven Invoker Plugin Version 3.0.0 Released

| Comments

The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache Maven Invoker Plugin, version 3.0.0.

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:
