maven lifecycle configuration
I'm playing with maven plugins, specifically i'm trying to develop a custom maven plugin for eclipse. All goes well, it builds from console ... etc until:`
"Plugin execution not covered by lifecycle configuration"
appears. I research and find this:
obviously i do not want to ignore the plugin's execution, the execute instruction does not seem to work, as for the delegate to project configurator, i am not able to find
I've searched in org.eclipse.jdt , core and source but there is no reference to what i am searching, best match i could find was here:
All in one, what i want to achive is this: "Starting with m2e 1.1, maven plugin developers are able to provide lifecycle mapping metadata as part of the plugin itself." as stated in the first link i inserted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
To simply bypass the mojo execution or telling m2e to simply execute your mojo via maven embedder you need the following:
a proper lifecycle mapping as explained in your link. Reference: https://github.com/php-maven/maven-php-plugin/blob/master/ide-plugins/eclipse/tags/2.0.3/org.phpmaven.eclipse.core/lifecycle-mapping-metadata.xml However I put it in the root of the eclipse project to be able to debug it (finding those extra resources sometimes failes if you put them in src folders).
A build properties to embedd it into build: https://github.com/php-maven/maven-php-plugin/blob/master/ide-plugins/eclipse/tags/2.0.3/org.phpmaven.eclipse.core/build.properties
Activation via dependencies and extension:
Hope this helps. I was confused about the project configurator too. But the above example does not require any project configurator.
