Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6645) Switch to Maven for building Apache Derby

Alex O'Ree commented on DERBY-6645:
-----------------------------------

i'm totally in support of this. i have a bunch of ideas for enhancing derby but i've been
unable to get netbeans to open the project. Maven based projects are supported by pretty much
every ide out there. Maybe i'll give this a shot

> 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.
