Subject Switch to maven?
Date Wed, 09 Mar 2016 00:00:54 GMT

I'd keen to switch our ant build to a modulized maven build.
I guess there were already several discussions about this topic,
but I couldn't find them on a quick view.

Most of the work has been already done by Dominik in the sonar builds,
so I hope it's not too time consuming to change.

I expect that this change ...
- clean-ups the directory structures
- obsoletes the maintaining of the sonar poms
- better documents the external dependencies
- maybe provide a better tool integration ... (although I can't complain ...)

Last time I've talked with Dominik about that topic, he favored Apache Ivy (... if I remember
correctly ...)
I have to admit, that I haven't played much with other dependency managers
and maven might be already out of date ... but as our release artifacts are still poms,
this switch don't seem to be so far off ...

For a start I'd move the poi modules 1:1 to poms, but eventually I'd like to have format based
for Excel, Powerpoint, ...

What do you think?
