Using pre-releases with Maven
<repositories> <!-- ... -->
<repository> <id>vaadin-prereleases</id> <name>Vaadin Pre-releases</name> <url>https://maven.vaadin.com/vaadin-prereleases</url> </repository> </repositories>
<pluginRepositories> <!-- ... -->
<repository> <id>vaadin-prereleases</id> <name>Vaadin Pre-releases</name> <url>https://maven.vaadin.com/vaadin-prereleases</url> </repository> </pluginRepositories>
Using pre-releases with Ivy
Vaadin pre-releases are located in separate Maven repository. You need to update repository specification into either in ivysettings.xml or in ivy.xml. After this the pre-release version numbers work the normal way in your project.
<resolvers> <chain name="default"> <!-- ... --> <ibiblio name="vaadin-prereleases" usepoms="true" m2compatible="true" root="https://maven.vaadin.com/vaadin-prereleases" /> </chain> </resolvers>
Using archetypes with pre-releasesYou can generate a test project using the standard Vaadin archetypes. However, you need to make sure you have the pre-releases repositories properly configured for the generated project.
To generate a project using 7.6 rc1 use :
mvn archetype:generate \ -DarchetypeGroupId=com.vaadin \ -DarchetypeArtifactId=vaadin-archetype-application \ -DarchetypeRepository=https://maven.vaadin.com/vaadin-prereleases \ -DarchetypeVersion=7.6.0.rc1
