I have created a JIRA, QPID-2987, to track progress in attempting to  
replace Ant with Maven for the build system.


I would appreciate any comments or ideas on how best to rfey and  
implement this. I have taken note of the (large) number of early  
JIRAs pointing out problems with this approach, and will try not to  
replicate these. I am hoping that the latest version of Maven 2.2.1  
will mitigate many of these, anyway.

Obviously, this is not the only way to manage dependencies, and we  
still need to vote on whether to go ahead with the switch, and any  
changes I check in would *not* touch the existing Ant build  
infrastructure until we are all agreed on the way forward - this is  
purely a proof of concept to stimulate further discussion among the  
Qpid Java developers.
