select maven profile based on git branch

Is it possible to select a profile based on what the current git branch is?

For example, if you are in the master branch, it selects the ‘production’ profile. If it is the develop branch, it selects the ‘development’ profile.

    Is something like this possible? Or are there better ways? I want an easy way to automatically select the correct profile depending on the branch being build.

    Make the profile activation by a file. Then create the file in a corresponding branch only, so that when you switch branches the file will appear or disappear, it will affect the profile activation.

    However, I feel that it is bad idea to select maven profile based on git branch.

    1. Use profile ID the same as your git branch.
    2. Run maven with corresponding profile:

      mvn clean deploy -P $(git rev-parse –abbrev-ref HEAD)
