How to trigger Maven or Gradle tasks from a plugin

Hi Community,

I want to know if there is a possibility to trigger a Maven or Gradle tasks or access the cmd to execute a command for this.

For visibility I shall post my original answer from the previous thread - http://devnet.jetbrains.com/message/5490144#5490144

Hi Markus,

I'm not entirely sure how to do this currently;

But within IntelliJ there are the concept of services (http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/IDEADEV/IntelliJ+IDEA+Plugin+Structure#IntelliJIDEAPluginStructure-PluginServices) which allows a plugin component to be loaded on demand.
And I can also see from the Maven plugin.xml file that it exposes some services (https://github.com/JetBrains/intellij-community/blob/master/plugins/maven/src/main/resources/META-INF/plugin.xml)

That might be worth checking out.

After some try and error I don't really get a solution for this problem.
I can't get the same services as in the Maven plugin.xml into my project.

Have you added the library to your classpath?

If you still can't get it that way, i'm afraid someone else will have to confirm how to do it :)

Which library do you mean?

Sorry but I'm just a newbie to plugin development :)
I think it would be easier to execute a cmd command but I don't even know how to do that :^O

You must add all JARs from plugins ($IDEA_HOME$/plugins/...) to your IntelliJ Platform SDK in order to use components provided by them.

Thanks a lot,

it works!
I use the MavenRunner to execute a Maven task and it runs fine.

- Edit: I found an easier way. I execute a cmd command with Runtime.exec(cmd) and specify a Maven command.
