The "duplicate classes" errors, I think, are an artifact of build 
history; the ant build unpacks the json sources to:


while maven unpacks them to:


Both locations are on the build path when maven executes its "compile" 
target, so you get the duplicate class errors if you've already built 
json with ant. You can remove the files generated by ant, which aren't 
in SVN, and it should compile with maven.

If switching back and forth between ant and maven is desirable, I don't 
think it's too much work to harmonize the build processes in this 
particular instance, but that sets a bad precedent.  Are there strong 
objections to dropping one of the build tools?

[ OTOH, if this really is a one-off sort of problem, another option 
would be to see if the json.org folks -- or designated agents thereof -- 
can be persuaded to put their Apache-licenced binaries jars into the 
maven repositories, or switch to a json library that is in the maven 
repositories (json-lib, which is Apache licensed, but about which I know 
little else) ]
