I am writing pom.xml to be used with Bamboo. My pom.xml will actually generate an EAR file, which have a dependency for a war module.
If I don't have the web module (artifactId) installed, the pom.xml for EAR will report an error.
My question is - How can I ask pom.xml to first build the war artifactId and then based on that artifactId, generate the EAR.
My problem's solution is something eclipse already does provide. I create an Enterprise project, have a web project as it's dependency, and when I use export as EAR, eclipse does something (that's what I want), and web project is build, WAR is generated and an EAR is generated with the web module in it.
The relation of Bamboo is here that, the bamboo is gonna use that same pom.xml file, and it has to know that I have a wart module and an ear module, and that war module must be build first and then included in the ear.
I have not used Bamboo, but there should be a way in Bamboo to set dependencies among projects. What you really want is that whenever you modify something in the WAR, that Bamboo first builds the WAR and then builds the EAR. Thus the EAR project depends on the WAR project. I know that in Hudson this kind of dependency among Maven projects is picked up automatically.
