Using maven help plugin June 28, 2012

Posted by maxmil in : Uncategorized , trackback

I very often end up looking at the API docs for a maven plugin to consult its optional and required parameters for a given goal.

I’ve now discovered the maven help plugin which does just that but from within the shell.

For example to get documentation for the prepare goal of the release plugin

mvn help:describe -Dplugin=release -Dgoal=prepare -Dfull
