  • I've previously used maven-artifact-ant that is not updated since 2.0.4. Now I need a new (2.0.6) feature - to attach additional source and javadoc jar's from install task. I've tried to use maven-ant-tasks 2.0.7 but failed. It gives me java.lang.ClassCastException: org.codehaus.plexus.component.configurator.BasicComponentConfigurator cannot be cast to org.codehaus.plexus.component.configurator.ComponentConfigurator at org.codehaus.plexus.personality.plexus.lifecycle.phase.AutoConfigurePhase.execute(AutoConfigurePhase.java:34) at org.codehaus.plexus.lifecycle.AbstractLifecycleHandler.start(AbstractLifecycleHandler.java:101) at org.codehaus.plexus.component.manager.AbstractComponentManager.startComponentLifecycle(AbstractComponentManager.java:105) at org.codehaus.plexus.component.manager.AbstractComponentManager.createComponentInstance(AbstractComponentManager.java:95) at org.codehaus.plexus.component.manager.PerLookupComponentManager.getComponent(PerLookupComponentManager.java:48) at org.codehaus.plexus.DefaultPlexusContainer.lookup(DefaultPlexusContainer.java:331) at org.codehaus.plexus.DefaultPlexusContainer.lookup(DefaultPlexusContainer.java:440) at org.apache.maven.plugin.DefaultPluginManager.getConfiguredMojo(DefaultPluginManager.java:562) at org.apache.maven.plugin.DefaultPluginManager.executeMojo(DefaultPluginManager.java:421) at org.apache.maven.lifecycle.DefaultLifecycleExecutor.executeGoals(DefaultLifecycleExecutor.java:539) at org.apache.maven.lifecycle.DefaultLifecycleExecutor.executeGoalWithLifecycle(DefaultLifecycleExecutor.java:480) at org.apache.maven.lifecycle.DefaultLifecycleExecutor.executeGoal(DefaultLifecycleExecutor.java:459) at org.apache.maven.lifecycle.DefaultLifecycleExecutor.executeGoalAndHandleFailures(DefaultLifecycleExecutor.java:311) at org.apache.maven.lifecycle.DefaultLifecycleExecutor.executeTaskSegments(DefaultLifecycleExecutor.java:278) at org.apache.maven.lifecycle.DefaultLifecycleExecutor.execute(DefaultLifecycleExecutor.java:143) at org.apache.maven.DefaultMaven.doExecute(DefaultMaven.java:334) at org.apache.maven.DefaultMaven.execute(DefaultMaven.java:125) at org.apache.maven.cli.MavenCli.main(MavenCli.java:280) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl.java:39) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:25) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:597) at org.codehaus.classworlds.Launcher.launchEnhanced(Launcher.java:315) at org.codehaus.classworlds.Launcher.launch(Launcher.java:255) at org.codehaus.classworlds.Launcher.mainWithExitCode(Launcher.java:430) at org.codehaus.classworlds.Launcher.main(Launcher.java:375) Looking at the jar, I can see that it contains (unlike to maven-artifact-ant) a lot of code not related to ant tasks itself inside it. I suppose this classes clashes with the "parent" maven classes. I suppose this to be a bug, because even if you wish to depend on maven code, you must provide it with dependency mechanism in maven artifact (so that it could be disabled) and not with including additional classes into the jar.
