Multithread Build Hangs Execution with sonar:sonar goal when Aggregator POM references a Child Module as its Parent

      Problem Statement

      I have an Aggregator POM whose Parent POM is also one of its child Modules. When I run a multi-thread Maven build with normal goals, such as 'clean install' it works as expected; The Parent module builds first followed by the Aggregator.

      However when running 'mvn sonar:sonar -T 2' the build hangs indefinitely (from org.sonarsource.scanner.maven:sonar-maven-plugin:

      Reproducing the Issue

      A normal multi-threaded build should work as expected: mvn clean install -T 2

      But when running sonar goal, it hangs indefinitely: mvn sonar:sonar -T 2 (This can also be reproduced with mvn clean install sonar:sonar -T 2, in which case it hangs immediately after building and installing both projects)

      Running the same build with a single thread works fine: mvn sonar:sonar

      Stack Trace of Hanging Maven Process



      I saw the same behavior with Maven 3.0.5, 3.2.3, and 3.3.9, as well with sonar-maven-plugin 3.0 and with the same results. From the stack trace, it seems Maven itself is hung (not deadlocked though), and while it may be caused by the Sonar plugin, it seems the fix likely needs to come from Maven.

      If I make the aggregator itself the parent (and get rid of the parent module entirely) then it works fine. The problem with this approach, is in our project we are also creating aggregated site reports for our project, which if I recall correctly when I tried this last time, the aggregated reports were not always working as expected when the aggregator POM builds before its modules.
