Re: [tycho-user] Lack of persistence of the product target directory.

1) The delete of the target directory does not occur when the test goal is removed.  This is clearly not a permanent solution.

2) The important link in the bug report to help my understand is broken.  Does anyone know where the article went?
the general design issues in maven with forked lifecycles are described on

>From a first glance it looks like these issues have not been adressed in maven core yet.

What can we do?

3) My knowledge of Maven is not deep enough to know how to discover if the test goal is forked.  How can I tell?

if so, check for other maven plugins in your build which invoke a forked maven lifecycle.

I have a high degree of confidence I caused this issue with some type of configuration change.  But since the project is new, I did not have a nightly build running yet.  So I was

 producttargetdirectory will not persist.  Some step deletes the whole producttargetdirectory.  In summary the question is as follows. 

Why does the producttargetdirectory get created and properly populated (correctly from what little amount of time I can look)
during a Tycho build only to have the
target directory completely deleted seconds later in the Tycho build process? 
The target directory gets properly populated roughly at the

Can someone give a clue where to look.  I have exhausted all my guesses.  Which is not a lot since I am new to Eclipe & Tycho.
