(For this example assume the following versions: new = 1.2.0, old =
1.1.1, test = SNAPSHOT)
Make sure all modified source files intended for the release have been committed.
Build on a Linux machine, eg mctest
Edit the version number in the pom.xml file in your local workspace and commit. (ex: change 1.1.1 to 1.2.0)
Create a temporary build directory and get a clean checkout of source. (I highly recommend this not be done in your local workspace. You want to make sure you are getting only checked-in mods for the build.)
> cd /home/mctest/ (or wherever you'd like to build this)
