Forcing the download of a dependency

Forcing the download of a dependency

2007-12-01       - By /U


I have written a Mojo which binds to "generate-sources" phase and needs to
process a jar artifact dependency of the project. The problem is that when I
the Mojo, the dependency (the artifact) is not downloaded into

My Mojo is defined in plugin my.plugins:myplugin as follows:

    * Goal which extracts files from dependency framework.jar.
    * @(protected) bootstrap
    * @(protected) compile
    * @(protected) generate-sources

I have also included the component "dependencies" in the Mojo (I thought
this might be needed to force dependency resolution):

  * The set of dependencies required by this project
  * @(protected) default-value="${project.dependencies}"
  * @(protected)
  * @(protected)
  private Collection dependencies;

Now consider a project foo where this plugin is used during
"generate-sources" phase:

       // Excerpt from the POM using the Mojo:

The client project binds the Mojo to the generate-sources phase:

                                               framework-1 (See

The Mojo processes the artifact framework.jar when invoked:

   $ mvn myplugin:bootstrap

This fails because it does not find the artifact framework-1 (See
in MavenProject.getBuild().getDirectory().

I need to force the plugin to download framework-1 (See
during generate-sources phase; I thought the class-level
       @(protected) generate-resources

would do the trick. It obviously is not working. How do I force the project
download this artifact when this Mojo is invoked?
