Continuous Integration: Developer
POM version on master
Technically, the master branch must be releasable at any time.
When a gCube release is declared open by the Release Manager and until it is declared close, the artifact version in the POM on master MUST NOT have the -SNAPSHOT suffix.
At release time, the dependencies listed on the pom must be in one of the following formats:
1) a fixed version (without the -SNAPSHOT qualifier). E.g.:
2) a range with the lower limit without the SNAPSHOT qualifier. E.g.:
- [1.0, 1.3]
- [1.0, 1.3-SNAPSHOT)
- [1.0, 2.0]
- [1.0, 2.0-SNAPSHOT)
The reason behind this type of range is to make sure snapshots are not required at release time. The build of the project would otherwise fail since the gcube-snasphots maven repository is obviously not visible during the release build.
A developer can use the dependencies' versions that best fit the development activity (even if it's suggested to always keep these formats to avoid a continuous switching) but must then comply to the formats on the master branch at release time.
