I have committed the split metadata now. The details are below. I'd like
to get feedback from the projects that use it.
I couldn't execute mvn deploy. It would fail with e.g.
[INFO] Error retrieving previous build number for artifact
'org.jboss.metadata:metadata-common:jar': repository metadata for:
data:metadata-common:2.0.0-SNAPSHOT' could not be retrieved from
due to an error: Authorization failed:
So, if you want to build e.g. EJB metadata you have to check out ejb and
common projects, build and install common and then build ejb.
New metadata structure
Metadata project (version 1.0.X) has been split into several: common
project + one project per specific technology. The initial version for
all the new projects is 2.0.0-SNAPSHOT. The current list of the projects is:
The common one contains stuff which is used by other projects, plus
common Java EE metadata, common JBoss metadata and WS metadata. These
could further be extracted to their own projects if needed.
All technology-specific projects declare dependency on the common project.
The main location is
. Under which each
project's trunk is located under project_name/trunk, e.g. common/trunk,
groupId remains the same, i.e. org.jboss.metadata.
artifactId is metadata-project_name, e.g. metadata-common, metadata-ejb,
Things that were removed
Packages org.jboss.ejb3.metamodel and org.jboss.metamodel.descriptor
weren't copied. I am not sure if they are used now.
The same for org.jboss.metadata.test.ejb3 and
JAWS DTDs weren't copied neither (they shouldn't have been there from
