Subject [jira] [Commented] (NUTCH-1371) Replace Ivy with Maven Ant tasks
Date Tue, 07 Jan 2014 12:55:53 GMT


Julien Nioche commented on NUTCH-1371:

Moving to Maven altogether won't be a problem only if all the functionalities of the ANT+IVY
build are preserved. For instance we'd need an elegant way of dealing with the Nutch plugins
with Maven, etc...
Not a high priority task in my views, but if you want to provide a patch, I'll be happy to
review it

> We might move to Maven altogether but a good intermediate step could be to rely on the
maven ant tasks for managing the dependencies. Ivy does a good job but we need to have a pom
file anyway for publishing the artefacts which means keeping the pom.xml and ivy.xml contents
in sync. Most devs are also more familiar with Maven, and it is well integrated in IDEs. Going
the ANT+MVN way also means that we don't have to rewrite the whole building process and can
rely on our existing script
