Subject [jira] Commented: (ACE-62) Convert Ace build to Maven
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2010 07:35:27 GMT


Toni Menzel commented on ACE-62:

Hi Zilvinas,
thanks for stepping in and submitting a patch !
First i should say:
* the maven build is in-development
* we started to cut the prior ant based build into artifacts
* make bundles, in the order of: 1. ave-gateway, 2. ace-server 3. ace-gui
* Currently we are in 1. - though 1 is expected to work almost completely.
Looking at the patch file, i noticed you also proposed some transitive changes like converting
pure library projects to osgi bundles. Though, they have been left packaging=jar and no mavenbundleplugin
usage intentionally.
That said, i will check the current trunk and see whats the problem.
Thanks again,

> Some discussion has occurred after ACUS about converting the ACE build to Maven.  This
has some unique challenges, mostly regarding build speed.  The build is currently a highly-optimized
set of Ant tasks, which is not necessarily compatible speed-wise with a set of naturally decomposed
Maven POMs.  
> Three people have expressed interest in working on this: Toni Menzel, Jean-Baptiste Onofré,
and Brian Topping.  Toni suggested that we start a Github project so the three of us (currently
not committers) could start work on this immediately, which is a great idea.  So if
doesn't work, let's use something better suited somewhere else!
> Shall we focus the discussion here?
