Whilst many people might find this is easy, I think I have google zillions of page just to get a simple
mvn release:prepare and
mvn release:perform with
I thought I am going to write a blog here just to help out those you might need a dummy-guide to get
maven prepare and perform working.
Please note that I am using Linux, and also running the command with Netbeans.
The public Key
- Firstly, do a
sudo apt-get install git
- The next thing we need to do is to identify WHO you are, and that is done by generating public key, and then install in on
- Open another terminal
- Generate with command
- Enter, enter passphrase etc, etc, just follow it. Until the key is generated.
- You will see similar image like this one — I just took Atlassian sample (Atlassian, 2015a):
$ ssh-keygen Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/Users/emmap1/.ssh/id_rsa): Created directory '/Users/emmap1/.ssh'. Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): Enter same passphrase again: Your identification has been saved in /Users/emmap1/.ssh/id_rsa. Your public key has been saved in /Users/emmap1/.ssh/id_rsa.pub. The key fingerprint is: 4c:80:61:2c:00:3f:9d:dc:08:41:2e:c0:cf:b9:17:69 firstname.lastname@example.org The key's randomart image is: +--[ RSA 2048]----+ |*o+ooo. | |.+.=o+ . | |. *.* o . | | . = E o | | o . S | | . . | | . | | | | | +-----------------+
- You then need to access your
BitBucket, go to avatar > Manage account and then click on SSH Keys. Again I took this example from Atlassian article (Atlassian, 2015b)
The ‘release’ branch
When we perform a release, of course we need to create a
branch where the artifacts being uploaded. So, go and login to your BitBucket and create a branch and call it
What needs to be done next is to modify our
pom.xml to point to the correct BitBucket account. Bear in mind that our
git can now identify WHO we are since we have do the
'public key work in the previous section.
In order to deploy artifacts on remote Git SCM repository, we need to use a plugin called
wagon-git (Synergian, 2015).
The website provided in Synergian is very detail. Feel free to follow it. But I am going to show you snippet of my
pom.xml anyway. comments interleaved.
