Subject Re: Axis Build System - Possible conversion to Maven
Date Sun, 16 Mar 2003 04:20:49 GMT
Maybe you are right, maybe you are not.  I am honestly just trying to help, but 
if the Axis team does not want this kind of help I will step aside no problem. 
I appreciate you listening though.  Like I said previously, I will probably use 
Maven to do my builds.  I also think it makes some general sense to split up the 
  component builds from the main code too.  You are the committer!  I am not!

and executed independently.  This was a requirement on the work done to revamp the test framework,
as before we built the whole thing in a glob, and ran them all.  We found out that the new
way works great for debugging a single test (as we hoped), but slowed the build/run time *way*
down.  Hindsight is 20/20.

people to help on the CODE very badly.  We need a new build system like we need a WSDL2Fortran
