Subject RE: Re: Why Continuum?

This is a good doc.  Thanks.  I don't think its entirely accurate
though.  For instance Continuum does not have the feature yet to invoke
builds based on SCM changes.  It is strictly a time based configuration.
This document indicates differently.  Its also says that CruiseControl
does not support M2.  Not sure if that is accurate now/still.  It's a
helpful and ambitious document, but is it being maintaining for accuracy
over time?

>> Continuum / M2 tighter integration

My comment here is not based on fact, just an observation that the
people behind these scenes of M2 and Continuum project a sense they are
all pointing in the same, metaphorical direction.

Jonathan, thanks for your fast reply.
Finally, I have found a comparison here:
But, still I do not understand what is the "tighter integration with
Maven 2" all about. Using CC I still can invoke Maven (1 or 2 -- does it
matter?) through the shell interface -- isn't it?
