      Description

      Maven artifacts normally come with proper dependency declarations in POM files.

      At the moment we only publish Alfresco binary artifacts only with generated empty POMs (https://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_Artifacts_Repository#A_note_on_3rd_party_dependencies).

      Having at least declared in POMs:

      • license
      • dependencies

      for each delivered JAR/WAR would allow a number of automated process like:

      • Extensions unit testing
      • Legal overlook for Alfresco deployments in controlled Enterprise environments
      • Full blown SDKs based on the Maven repository layout (e.g. Maven, Gradle, Ivy)
      • Making Alfresco available on Maven Central (http://repo1.maven.org)

      This mainly comprise of few sub-tasks:

      1. Identify GA dependencies specific to each alfresco module
      2. Identify Alfresco patched dependencies specific to each alfresco module
      3. Make deps at #2 available (with sources) on artifacts.alfresco.com
      4. Declare transitive dependencies (for JARs and WARs) in POM files (and maintain them across releases)
      5. Add POM deployment to the procedure of ALF-11027

      An intermediate attempt (simplified) could be:

      1. Define a plaftform-pom which represents the full SDK
      2. Add in this platform POM the alfresco-* dependencies and all the well known transitive dependencies in a flattened fashion
      3. Deploy this per release
