VersionEye Maven Plugin 3.9.1 is out and it has a lot of new features!
Now the Mavne golas
mvn versioneye:create and
mvn versioneye:update output the out-dated dependencies directly in the console. Like in this example:
This new configuration option can be used to ignore dependencies which are defined in the
dependencyManagement section of the pom.xml. By default the value of this switch is
false. That means by default the dependencies which are defined in the
dependencyManagement section of the pom.xml are processed and send to the server. If you don’t want that, just set the switch to
The way how the API key is fetched was completely refactored! Now it’s possible to keep the API key in the environment variable
VERSIONEYE_API_KEY. That is specially useful for setups on a central build server like Jenkins for example!
The plugin will look for the API Key at this places in that order:
- Environment variable VERSIONEYE_API_KEY
- pom.xml file
That means if the environment variable
VERSIONEYE_API_KEY is set, it can be overwritten by the
~/.m2/versioneye.properties file. And that can be overwritten by the settings in
src/qa/resources/versioneye.properties and so on.
Until now the proxy settings could be configured directly in the pom.xml file in the plugin configuration part. Now the configuration for the proxy can be placed at
~/.m2/versioneye.properties as well. That way it’s centralised and not all projects need to configure it on their own. Just put the proxy settings into the
~/.m2/versioneye.properties file like this:
proxyHost=PROXY_HOST proxyPort=PROXY_PORT proxyUser=PROXY_USER proxyPassword=PROXY_PASSWORD
If a project configures the proxy in the pom.xml in the configuration part of the plugin, that values are taken for that project. But otherwise the plugin will look for proxy settings at
Now there is new goal for deleting a project from the server.
The goal above will delete the project and all it’s modules from the VersionEye server and also remove alle versioneye.properties files from the source code. That is specially handy for big Java projects with many modules!
