Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-6645) Switch to Maven for building Apache Derby
Date Fri, 04 Jul 2014 08:06:33 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6645?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Moritz Hoffmann updated DERBY-6645:

    Attachment: DERBY-6645_v1.patch

I was able to build most of Derby using Maven. There are still some issues:
* jars are built without resources. I need to figure out where localization properties etc.
come from - any hints are appreciated!
* Most tests fail because jars get built without resources
* Eclipse plug-ins are not yet built

Attached there is a patch [^DERBY-6645_v1.patch] that shows my current efforts.

> For a new user building Derby is very hard. It does not follow established Java project
structures and requires a lot of prior knowledge. Also the documentation is rather short.
Especially running the tests is non-intuitive at the beginning. Thus, I propose that Derby
switches to building using Maven and restructures its components in a cleaner way. Testing
should be revised to produce reproducible results. This would make development and testing
much easier and more user-friendly.
