Subject [jira] Commented: (TAPESTRY-1732) Replace Maven build with Ant build
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2008 20:46:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAPESTRY-1732?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12578016#action_12578016

Howard M. Lewis Ship commented on TAPESTRY-1732:

Erik; I think you are underestimating my ingenuity.  I expect, via Ivy or the Maven Ant Tasks,
to keep the useful part of Maven (download dependencies), but jettison using Maven to build.
 We'll still produce Maven artifacts, with a POM and everything.

> 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.
