NAME

       Maven - Patches the POM files using the Maven dependency rules.

SYNOPSIS

       mh_patchpoms [option]...

DESCRIPTION

       Reads  the  file  debian/$package.poms and tranform each POM file listed in the .poms file
       into a POM file using the Debian versions of the libraries. Also keeps a  backup  of  each
       POM file which can be restored with mh_unpatchpoms

OPTIONS

       -h --help: show this text

       -V --version: show the version

       -p<package> --package=<package>: package to act on

       -k --keep-pom-version: keep the original version of the POMs but,

              convert  all  other  versions in dependencies and plugins If there is a parent POM,
              keeps its version except when  the  parent  is  already  registered  in  the  Maven
              repository

       -e<version>, --set-version=<version>: set the version for the POM,

              do not use the version declared in the POM file.

       -r<rules> --rules=<rules>: path to the file containing the

              rules  to  apply  when  cleaning  the  POM.   Optional,  the  default  location  is
              debian/maven.rules

       -R<rule>, --extra-rule=<rule>: extra rule to apply when cleaning the POM

              May occur multiple times, instead of or in addition to -r

       -u<rules> --published-rules=<rules>: path to the file containing the

              extra rules to publish in  the  property  debian.mavenRules  in  the  cleaned  POM.
              Optional, the default location is debian/maven.publishedRules

       -U<rule>, --extra-published-rule=<rule>: extra rule to publish

              May occur multiple times, instead of or in addition to -u

       -i<rules> --ignore-rules=<rules>: path to the file containing the

              rules  used  to  remove  certain  dependencies  from  the cleaned POM Optional, the
              default location is debian/maven.ignoreRules

       -I<rule>, --extra-ignore-rule=<rule>: extra rule used to remove dependencies

              from the transformed POM May occur multiple times, instead of or in addition to -i

       -c<rules> --clean-ignore-rules=<rules>: path to the file containing the

              rules use to remove certain dependencies from the cleaned POM, in addition  to  the
              ignore  rules  specified  previously. This is useful in situations such as when the
              Maven clean target requires more dependencies or plugins to ignore than  the  build
              target.   All  rules  defined  in  clean-ignore-rules will be added to the existing
              rules    in    ignore-rules.      Optional,     the     default     location     is
              debian/maven.cleanIgnoreRules

       -s --no-rules: don't apply any rules for converting versions,

              do not even convert versions to the default 'debian' version

       --no-publish-used-rule: don't publish the rule used to transform

              a POM's own attributes in debian.mavenRules

       -d --debian-build: transform during a Debian build, which means that

              some POM elements will be removed

       -b --build-no-docs: if the build doesn't need to build documentation, use this

              option  to  remove some POM elements (in particular plugins) which are useless here
              and may require extra dependencies and make the packaging harder.

       -m<repo root>--maven-repo=<repo root>: location of the Maven repository,

              used to force the versions of the Maven plugins used in the current POM  file  with
              the versions found in the repository

       -v --verbose: show more information while running

       -n --no-act: don't actually do anything, just print the results
