Subject [jira] Created: (TAPESTRY-1732) Replace Maven build with Ant build
Date Mon, 03 Sep 2007 19:28:58 GMT
Replace Maven build with Ant build

                 Key: TAPESTRY-1732
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAPESTRY-1732
             Project: Tapestry
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build
    Affects Versions: 5.0.5
            Reporter: Howard M. Lewis Ship

I like Maven dependency management.

However, it is increasingly evident to me that the Maven approach to the actual build, based
on endless plugins and configurations, is not worthwhile.  The only part that's necessary
is the Maven Ant tasks, which encapsulate downloading dependencies, installing them, and deploying
them to remote repositories.

Everything else worthwhile that Maven provides could be created as easily using Ant and perhaps
a few Velocity templates.  I'm willing to bet that the end result would work faster and take
far less effort to maintain.
