Activate Maven Profile by OS

By Arvind Rai, June 05, 2021
We can activate Maven profile by OS settings using <os> element within <activation> parent element. When the Maven build runs on the operating system which is configured in Maven profile, then that profile will be activated automatically.
The <os> element within <activation> parent element is used as following.
<activation>
  <os>
    <name>Windows XP</name>
    <family>Windows</family>
    <arch>x86</arch>
    <version>5.1.2600</version>
  </os>	
</activation> 




<os> Element

The <os> element is used within <activation> parent element. The <os> element defines the same parameters as defined by <requireOS> element used by Maven enforcer plugin.
The <os> tag can have following sub-tags.
<os>
  <name></name>
  <family></family>
  <arch></arch>
  <version></version>
  <display></display>    
  <message></message>  
</os> 
1. <name> : The name of the OS.
2. <family> : The family of OS such as dos, mac, netware, os/2, tandem, unix, windows, win9x, z/os, os/400 .
3. <arch> : CPU architecture.
4. <version> : The version of the OS.
5. <display> : Flag to display the detected OS information.
6. <message> : An optional message to the user in case of fail.

Find the sample Maven code with a profile that will be activated by OS settings.
