I've been working on compiling JIRA plugins lately, with maven-2.
And I see this go scrolling by:
In that single line, I get confused, as there are 4 hot words right there.
- WARNING: Hey, something bad happened, but it's not super bad.
- FAILED: Well, crap, it just plain did not work.
- ERROR: Yep, it still didn't work, and that's a bad bad thing.
- IGNORING: But apparently I shouldn't care too much, because maven surely isn't giving it much thought anymore.
Should I take corrective action? Is there anything I can do? I got all hyped up about being warned of the error of failing, only to be told it's no big deal.
Of course, I had to babysit the first build like a crack-baby delivered in the 2nd trimester. Maven attempts to download the world from Atlassian's repository which likes to take a nap after downloading a dozen .pom files. I'd have to go Control-C all over it, and start over, to get a running start at the next dozen .poms. Fun!
