Releasing Gemini Blueprint 2.x
Pre-req's: JDK 1.8. Maven 3.3.x.
Step 1 - execute staging release
Execute the Hudson release staging build (https://hudson.eclipse.org/gemini/view/blueprint/job/gemini-blueprint-stage-release/). After execution, test the staged artifacts. Go to https://oss.sonatype.org/ and switch to the nexus managed repositories:
There, select the orgeclipsegemini-[NNN] repository created by the build. Download and test the artifacts contained therein: - Are all expected release artifacts contained? - Are the artifacts versioned as expected?
Step 2 - publish the release (or drop it)
If you are satisfied with the staged artifacts, copy the staging repo id (e.g., "orgeclipsegemini-1001" in /service/local/repositories/orgeclipsegemini-1001/content/). Provide this as a parameter to the Gemini Blueprint Release job (https://hudson.eclipse.org/gemini/view/blueprint/job/gemini-blueprint-release/). This will irrevocably release the artifacts to maven central. In case you want to discard the staged artifacts execute the Gemini Blueprint Drop Staged Release Job (https://hudson.eclipse.org/gemini/view/blueprint/job/gemini-blueprint-drop-staging-repository/) with the same repository ID.
