Parent POM

This package defines basic build flow for all of projects developed in Chillout Development. But there is no magic - we release it open source, so you can make use of it for rapid bootstrap of your custom project.

To use it simply use pl.chilldev.parent:parent as parent of your project:

<project
    xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    xsi:schemaLocation="
        http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/maven-v4_0_0.xsd
">
    <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
    <parent>
        <groupId>pl.chilldev.parent</groupId>
        <artifactId>parent-opensource</artifactId>
        <version>{put-latest-version-here}</version>
    </parent>

    <!-- your project definition here -->
</project>

Project structure

There are four parts of this project, however just two of them are important for end-projects:

  • parent-generic is a generic Java project setup (that binds parent project plugins with parent-checkstyle ruleset);
  • parent-opensource contains additional setup for Chillout Development open source projects.

The other two parts are needed to provide shared Checkstyle ruleset and bind it together with released project:

  • parent is a base project definition, but without code style checks (which require separate packaging to make it shared between external projects);
  • parent-checkstyle is a packaged Checkstyle ruleset.
