Subject [jira] Commented: (TAPESTRY-1732) Replace Maven build with Ant build
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2008 03:34:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAPESTRY-1732?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12574340#action_12574340

Mark Shead commented on TAPESTRY-1732:

I would encourage you to keep the maven archetype up to date for the quickstart because I
think it will help with getting people to try it out for the first time.

> 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.
