Other SCM Commands

The scm plugin requires the scm to be configured in the pom.xml.

<project>
  ...
  <packaging>jar</packaging>
  <version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
  <name>SCM Sample Project</name>
  <url>http://somecompany.com</url>
  <scm>
    <connection>scm:svn:http://somerepository.com/svn_repo/trunk</connection>
    <developerConnection>scm:svn:https://somerepository.com/svn_repo/trunk</developerConnection>
    <url>http://somerepository.com/view.cvs</url>
  </scm>
  ...
</project>

If you want to change the default scm provider implementation, for exemple you want to use the native cvs instead of the pure java implementation, you must configure your plugin like that:

<project>
  ...
  <build>
    ...
    <plugins>
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
        <artifactId>maven-scm-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>1.9.1</version>
        <configuration>
          <providerImplementations>
            <cvs>cvs_native</cvs>
          </providerImplementations>
        </configuration>
      </plugin>
      ...
    </plugins
    ...
  </build>
  ...
</project>

Once the scm has been configured, scm operations can be performed.
