I'm currently working with the book "Better Builds with Maven" and doing some custom maven plugin development. I have a plugin I've created with the following POM info.
You know how you can just type "mvn <pluginName>:<mojoName>" for many mojos? My mojo has to run like this: "mvn com.exist.mvnbook.plugins:maven-buildinfo-plugin:extract" where "extract" is the mojo name. From the error I get when I try to run it like this 'mvn buildinfo:extract" it looks like I could get it to run that way if I changed the groupId of my mojo to "org.apache.maven.plugins". Am I stretching the analogy between groupId and java package names too far to think that it is inappropriate to use that groupId for my mojo? Is there another way to get my mojo to run without having to be so verbose?
