What is discovered?

The Maven Project Discoverer is not currently provided as an extension: instead it is embedded in CAST AIP Core and is therefore present "out of the box".

Supported project typeCAST Delivery Manager Tool interfaceResulting source package configuration
Maven project simplified support (versions 2 and 3)

Configures a project on each folder that contains a pom.xml file except when the type of packaging declared in the pom.xml is "pom".

Note that:

  • project inheritance and project aggregation is supported
  • the pom.xml must be valid XML and not contain any erroneous characters or spaces - you can check the consistency of an XML file by opening it in a browser - errors will be shown.

  • Java language and environment (1.1 to 8.0).
  • Application root path:
    • Standard MAVEN path (src/main/webapp) when "war" packaging is declared in pom.xml
    • otherwise folder containing POM
  • Source folders configured in standard maven paths:
    • src\main\java
    • src\test\java
  • Libraries according to artifact ids in the pom.xml dependencies declaration: JUnit, Log4J, Commons logging, DOM4J, JSF, MX4J, Hibernate, Struts, Spring etc.

Packaging messages

The following messages emitted by the discoverer may appear during the packaging action:

When a pom.xml file defines a dependency as "optional", a "missing project" alerts will be raised for the dependencies, even if they are actually present. These missing project alerts can be ignored. For example, the following will raise a missing project alert for "junit":


Dependency versions

When a dependency <version> is defined in a <properties> tag in the parent pom.xml, then the CAST Delivery Manager will be able to successfully locate the project. However, if the <properties> tag is then followed by a <profile> in a <profiles> tag, the CAST Delivery Manager is not able to recognize the dependent project and an undefined variable alert will be raised for this. To solve the undefined variable alert:

  • reconfigure the pom.xml by removing the <profile>
  • manually remediate the alert in the CAST Delivery Manager Tool
  • No labels
