Pre-Release tasks

The following tasks should be performed at least one day before starting the actual maven release!

  • Check that all maven plugins are used in the latest version
    $> mvn versions:display-plugin-updates 
    
  • Check that all maven dependencies are used in the latest version
    $> mvn versions:display-dependency-updates 
    

Release Preparations

  • Heads up on the mailing-lists

e.g.:

first steps for the next release

hi @ all,

if there are no objections, i'll start with the first steps for the next release (review, documentation,...).
it would be great to start with the release procedure next week.

regards,
...

First Steps

mvn release:prepare -DdryRun=true

//attention: use an useful tag-name (asked before the new version numbers) format [deltaspike-[version]]


//important: check the generated javadoc

//important: check if content was lost during release:prepare (especially license headers in pom.xml files)

mvn release:clean

mvn deploy

//check http://repository.apache.org/content/repositories/snapshots/org/apache/deltaspike/*

mvn release:prepare -Papache-release
//attention: use an useful tag-name (asked before the new version numbers)
//attention: invoke x2 (esp. in european countries)

//check tag in svn

// ATTENTION, THIS IS ONLY A WORKAROUND!
// AND WILL NOT BE NEEDED AFTER THE NEW maven-release-plugin GOT RELEASED 
cp -r ../git . 
// DON'T FORGET TO DELETE deltaspike/deltaspike/.git AGAIN AFTER THE RELEASE! 

mvn release:perform -Papache-release

//login to https://repository.apache.org/ and go to "Staging Repositories"
//check the shadded configs and esp. ...-[version]-source-release.zip
//close the repository

TODO - add GIT specific parts e.g. release branch,...
