POM version on master

Technically, the master branch must be releasable at any time.

When a gCube release is declared open by the Release Manager and until it is declared close, the artifact version in the POM on master MUST NOT have the -SNAPSHOT suffix.

Dependencies' version

At release time, the dependencies listed on the pom must be in one of the following formats:

1) a fixed version (without the -SNAPSHOT qualifier). E.g.:

  • 1.0
  • 1.1
  • ...


2) a range with the lower limit without the SNAPSHOT qualifier. E.g.:

  • [1.0, 1.3]
  • [1.0, 1.3-SNAPSHOT)
  • [1.0, 2.0]
  • [1.0, 2.0-SNAPSHOT)
  • ...

The reason behind this type of range is to make sure snapshots are not required at release time. The build of the project would otherwise fail since the gcube-snasphots maven repository is obviously not visible during the release build.

A developer can use the dependencies' versions that best fit the development activity (even if it's suggested to always keep these formats to avoid a continuous switching) but must then comply to the formats on the master branch at release time.

Creating a Release from the Tag

The tag procedure now is done automatically. The old activities were described here: Released Tags.
