Subject [jira] Commented: (ODE-729) Consider moving to maven
Date Wed, 09 Dec 2009 01:36:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ODE-729?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12787852#action_12787852
] 

Alexis Midon commented on ODE-729:
----------------------------------

"In some scenarios the more complex maven dependency mechanisms for transitive and scoped
dependencies would be useful for ODE developers and users. "
what are these scenarios today? 
I don't think we are badly missing the transitive dependency management today. Assuming that
we need it someday, it's likely that Buildr will have support it in the meantime. There are
already some development around that.

Buildr reuses a lot of maven conventions and brings the power and flexibility of a scripting
language. I'd be interested in knowing what the motivations for Maven are.

IMHO going back to Maven will be a huge task... and regression.

Developers coming to ODE are likely to be familiar with maven and already be using tools (such
as IDEs, continuous integration servers, etc) that have built-in support for maven poms. In
some scenarios the more complex maven dependency mechanisms for transitive and scoped dependencies
would be useful for ODE developers and users. 
> Is the ODE community interested in a maven-based build? Can maven handle the complexities
of ODE's packaging?
