Migration from older tools
This section describes how to migrate packages that use older deprecated tools to current ones.
add_maven_depmap macro
`%add_maven_depmap` macro was used to manually install Maven artifacts that were built with Apache Ant or `mvn-rpmbuild`. It is now deprecated and its invocations should be replaced with `%mvn_artifact` and `%mvn_install`.
Artifact files, Maven POM files and their installation directories no longer need to be manually installed, since that is done during run of `%mvn_install`. The installed files also don't need to be explicitly enumerated in `%files` section. Generated file `.mfiles` should be used instead.
Relevant parts of specfile using `%add_maven_depmap`
BuildRequires: javapackages-tools
Requires: some-library
ant test
install -d -m 755 $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_javadir}
install -m 644 target/%{name}.jar $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_javadir}/%{name}.jar
install -d -m 755 $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_mavenpomdir}
install -m 644 %{name}.pom $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/%{_mavenpomdir}/JPP-%{name}.pom
# Note that the following call is equivalent to invoking the macro
# without any parameters
%add_maven_depmap JPP-%{name}.pom %{name}.jar
# javadoc
install -d -m 755 $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_javadocdir}/%{name}
cp -pr api/* $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_javadocdir}/%{name}
%files javadoc
%doc %{_javadocdir}/%{name}
The same specfile migrated to `%mvn_artifact` and `%mvn_install`
# mvn_* macros are located in javapackages-local package
BuildRequires: javapackages-local
# Since XMvn generates requires automatically, it is no longer needed
# nor recommended to specify manual Requires tags, unless the dependency
# information in the POM is incomplete or you need to depend on non-java
# packages
# The default location for installing JAR files is %{_javadir}/%{name}/
# Because our original specfile put the JAR directly to %{_javadir}, we
# want to override this behavior. The folowing call tells XMvn to
# install the groupId:artifactId artifact as %{_javadir}/%{name}.jar
%mvn_file groupId:artifactId %{name}
# Tell XMvn which artifact belongs to which POM
%mvn_artifact %{name}.pom target/%{name}.jar
