Re: [tycho-user] Release OSGi bundles/projects with Tycho

I am not aware of anything besides the tycho-versions-plugin [1]. The
tricky part is that you don't want to switch to non-SNAPSHOT versions
for bundles and features (as 2.0.5 comes before 2.0.5.qualifer in
OSGi-land but after 2.0.5-SNAPSHOT in Maven-land). On the other hand,
parent POMs or eclipse-repository artifacts do deserve a non-SNAPSHOT

If you group them by using directories like plugins, tests, and
features, this is quite easy to do on the shell. Here's what I do when
releasing Eclipse Code Recommenders, for example [2,3]:

> export RELEASE=2.0.5
> export NEXT=2.0.6
> mvn clean org.eclipse.tycho:tycho-versions-plugin:set-version -Dproperties=recommenders-version -DnewVersion=${RELEASE}
> # Revert bundles and features to .qualifer
> mvn org.eclipse.tycho:tycho-versions-plugin:set-version -Dartifacts=$(basename plugins/*/ tests/*/ features/*/ | paste -sd "," - ) -DnewVersion=${RELEASE}-SNAPSHOT
> git commit -a -m "[releng] ${RELEASE}"
> git checkout HEAD^ -- '*'
> mvn clean org.eclipse.tycho:tycho-versions-plugin:set-version -Dproperties=recommenders-version -DnewVersion=${NEXT}-SNAPSHOT
> git commit -a -m "[releng] ${NEXT}-SNAPSHOT"

Hope that helps.
