My team uses an internal team maven repo that is shared from a development server using Apache. We also run the Continuum CI server on the same machine. Maven builds in Continuum are run with the "install" goal, which copies the final artifact directly into the shared directory.
The question is, what is the difference between adding files to the shared repo using
mvn install and using the deploy goal (mvn-deploy plugin)?
It seems to me that using
mvn deploy creates additional configuration hassles, but I have read somewhere that installing files into a shared repo is a bad idea for some reason related to the internal workings of maven.
update: I get the functional differences between
install; I am actually more interested in the low level details in terms of what files are created in the maven repo.
