Using maven-tomcat-plugin:2.0 for integration testing deployments results in some Jenkins job logs where 99% of the lines comes from the upload "progress meter" (implemented in "TomcatManager.RequestEntityImplementation.transferProgressed").
In some other plugins with similar HTTP activity, this kind of output can be turned off by launching Maven with "
B/ batch-mode" (and probably "-quiet" too, although I never do that). This seems to be standard behavior for plugins which uses Wagon or Aether. Would it be possible to implement a similar behavior in the maven-tomcat-plugin?
Actually, I gave it a try today, but I couldn't find how to get the Maven batch/quiet options through the plugin API. My other attempt was to reuse the Wagon "TransferListener" instance (the implementation, which can be a verbose or quiet progress meter, seems to be chosen depending on the Maven CLI option), but I couldn't find a path to there neither. But it's my first time in some Maven code, I probably have missed something.
Sure, if it's actually not possible to implement a quiet mode based on the Maven CLI options, then an alternative would be to add a plugin-specific parameter. But I think it would be a bit less convenient.
