Generating changelogs for a site

Now that we have seen the Maven SCM plugin in action, we can see how we can use this feature to generate a log of project changes as part of the site report.

How to do it...

  1. Open the Maven project project-with-documentation.
  2. Add the following entry in the reporting section:
          <plugin>
            <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
            <artifactId>maven-changelog-plugin</artifactId>
            <version>2.3</version>
          </plugin>
  3. Run the following command:
    mvn site
    
  4. Observe the output:
