      Description

      Since Maven 2.0.9 – If a plugin uses a forked lifecycle, then the project properties are resolved by maven before the lifecycle is forked.
      This means that the forked lifecycle has the non-forked lifecycle's values.

      This was not the case in maven prior to version 2.0.9, where properties were resolved at a much later time.

      For example - the attached sample project uses the Clover plugin with the xdoclet plugin. When

      mvn clean install

      is run under Maven-2.0.8 you can see the following output:

      [INFO] [xdoclet:xdoclet {execution: default}]
      [INFO] Initializing DocletTasks!!!
      [INFO] Executing tasks
           [echo] Build Dir: ${project.build.directory}/test.clover
      [INFO] Executed tasks
      

      whilst Maven 2.0.9 outputs:

      [INFO] [xdoclet:xdoclet {execution: default}]
      [INFO] Initializing DocletTasks!!!
      [INFO] Executing tasks
          [mkdir] Created dir: /Users/niick/work/mvnclvr/src/it/mng/xdoclet/target
          [touch] Creating /Users/niick/work/mvnclvr/src/it/mng/xdoclet/target/test.clover
           [echo] Build Dir: /Users/niick/work/mvnclvr/src/it/mng/xdoclet/target/test.clover
      [INFO] Executed tasks
      [INFO] [resources:resources]
      

      The fact the $

      {project.build.directory}

      property has been expanded already under 2.0.9, means that the forked lifecycle has the same value for that property.

      This new behavior will break any plugin which uses a forked lifecycle.
