[Created] (MNG-6237) Property value during the same build should not change

JIRA jira@apache.org
Zoltan Haindrich created MNG-6237:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: Property value during the same build should not change
                 Key: MNG-6237
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6237
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.3.3
            Reporter: Zoltan Haindrich


I've encountered this problem in HIVE-14289.
But now I know more...and I think I probably understand what's going on.

Long story short, I would like to override some project property to use a different version of a dependency...however using
{code}
mvn install -Dhadoop.version=2.8.0
{code}
is not enough...that's what I've found out in that ticket.

The problem is:

 * root project defines a property {{junit.version}}
 * there is a lib project which pulls in a dependency with that property
 * there is an app module which tries to use the lib in some way

in this setup even thru the developer would like to override the version of {{junit.version}}, he can't really do it; because maven references to it anyway.

I've created a samle project in which the root project contains a malformed version number; and in case it tries to use it, will end up with an artifact resolution error.

I'm not sure if the problem is within maven or in some of its plugins...
