The following works:
$> mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeCatalog=local -Dgoals=antrun:run
But this has some major disadvantages:
- The configuration of the goal has to be defined in the final POM of the new project
- The user using the archetype has to know about the additional parameter
It would be a big imovement if the a creator of an archetype could define some additional goals to be executed after the creation of the new project. THe documentation for 'generate' tells this about the 'goals' parameter: 'Additional goals that can be specified by the user during the creation of the archetype'. But it does not tell how the creator could define additonal goals.
