Pull Requests Spanning Repositories

Activiti now uses fixed versions instead of maven snapshot versions. This changes how to create pull requests that span multiple repositories.

For example, say you are working on related changes in both the Activiti/Acitiviti repository and also activiti-cloud-runtime-bundle-service. The changes in activiti-cloud-runtime-bundle-service will depend on the changes here. To use these changes you need to build the artifacts from your modified version of the Activiti/Activiti repo against the modified version of activiti-cloud-runtime-bundle-service.

So in activiti-cloud-runtime-bundle-service repository we need to apply the SNAPSHOT version. We can do this by taking the name of the maven artifact ending with -dependencies from the repo and applying this as a new dependency entry in the dependencyManagement section of module ending with -dependencies in the target activiti-cloud-runtime-bundle-service repository. This means we locally add the entry:


as the first entry in the dependencyManagement section of the activiti-cloud-runtime-bundle-dependencies module of activiti-cloud-runtime-bundle-service.

The entry needs to be first so that it takes priority over other pom imports (boms). The same process should for applying other changes to downstream repositories. For more on the sequence of repositories see Repositories or this blog post on CI and CD
