A root pom for configuring common release related plugins for open source maven projects.

Usage

There's still some boilerplate that has to go into your project pom.xml. Use the template below.

<project>
  <parent>
    <groupId>com.spotify</groupId>
    <artifactId>foss-root</artifactId>
    <version>LATEST-VERSION</version>
  </parent>
  
  <artifactId>YOUR_ARTIFACT_NAME</artifactId>
  <version>VERSION-SNAPSHOT</version>

By default your project will target Java 8. If you don't need Java 8 compatibility and you would like to target a later version of Java, set the maven.compiler.release property in your project, like so:

<properties>
  <maven.compiler.release>11</maven.compiler.release>
</properties>

After setting this up, you'll be able to

add license headers to all sources

mvn license:update-file-header

deploy snapshots

mvn deploy

deploy releases

mvn release:prepare
mvn release:perform
