Maven publish and archivesBaseName


(Max Schenkelberg) #1

Continuing the discussion from 'maven-publish' and artifactId:

I was also thinking maven publish should default to archivesBaseName for artifactId. I think this is a better default since archivesBaseName defaults to project.name and changing project.name in a multiproject build is very cumbersome. I would think if a developer explicitly decided to override the archive name they want it to be reflected as well when published otherwise why take the time to change the name of the artifact?

Thanks
