Problem

When you migration you project from the parent pom io.wcm.maven:io.wcm.maven.aem-global-parent from version 1.1.x to 1.2.x you have to do some adjustments to your project.

The default definition of Adobe's content-package-maven-plugin has changed to allow switching to wcmio-content-package-maven-plugin for building content packages.

When you update your parent pom Dependency your project build will fail with an error message like this:

$ mvn clean install

Solution

You have two alternative solutions:

  • a) Stick with Adobe content-package-maven-plugin and add the missing configuration
  • b) Switch to wcmio-content-package-maven-plugin

Solution a) Stick with Adobe content-package-maven-plugin

  • Edit all pom.xml with packaging type content-package
  • Add

    <extensions>true</extensions>

    to the plugin definition of com.day.jcr.vault:content-package-maven-plugin

Solution b) Switch to wcmio-content-package-maven-plugin

  • Edit all pom.xml with packaging type content-package
  • Switch plugin definition from com.day.jcr.vault:content-package-maven-plugin to io.wcm.maven.plugins:wcmio-content-package-maven-plugin
  • Add

    <extensions>true</extensions>

    to the plugin definition of io.wcm.maven.plugins:wcmio-content-package-maven-plugin

  • Add a resource definition to copy the content of your jcr_root folder to the target/classes folder like this:

    <resources>
      <!-- Include all files from jcr_root in content package -->
      <resource>
        <directory>jcr_root</directory>
      </resource>
    </resources>
  • If your project does not contain a jcr_content folder, but only OSGi bundles copied via maven-dependency-plugin to the vault-work folder you can omit the previous step ("complete" package)
