It seems as though the Codehaus Mojo Project has reached the end of the line. After finishing up my testdox maven plugin, I tried to contribute my plugin to the Codehaus Project, but it has fallen on deaf ears. I guess it's time to take things into my own hands, and so I'm happy to announce the first official release of the testdox maven plugin.
Enabling the plugin is a snap. Just add this xml block to your maven2 project and the next time you build your site documentation, the superfancy testdox report will be included in your project reports.
<repositories> <repository> <id>codecrate-repository</id> <name>Codecrate Repository</name> <url>http://maven.codecrate.com/</url> </repository> </repositories> <reporting> <plugins> <plugin> <groupId>com.codecrate.maven.plugins</groupId> <artifactId>testdox-maven-plugin</artifactId> </plugin> </plugins> </reporting>
It's unfortunate that the Codehaus Mojo project is in the state that it is. Since the Maven core codebase is ASF licensed, non-ASF contributions can not be included in the Maven core. That makes this this extension project extremely important to encourage users to develop plugins for the "rest of the non-ASF" world.
This is exactly why the wicket-stuff project is such an important partner to the core wicket project. And wicket-stuff is definitely doing things right. Tons of contributions and an extremely low barrier for new projects to get up and running.
