Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-1255) unit tests fail on windows (jdbm-store and core-integ)
Date Thu, 25 Sep 2008 08:27:44 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSERVER-1255:

Not that I like maven either, but you have options here. The biggest problem is that Maven
will grab almost the whole internet (even more of it than the Google indexed pages ;) when
you domm your repository. It's time consuming, for sure.

For instance, you can install a maven proxy ( to be sure that it
uses the 100Mbs local network instead of a slow ISDN connection. And I'm pretty sure that's
a good idea to get a stable version of the jars you are using 

<maven rant>I personnaly find it fairly dangerous to grab jars from the internet when
building a product, as you have _no_ guarantee that those jars have not changed since the
last build. This is were Maven did not get it : it's a build system, it does not manage your
configuration... Studio was built using Ant a while back, and we stored into SVN _all_ the
used jars, and we were able to guarantee that we can get a tagged version with all the jars
used to build this specific version. This can't be done with maven, as the jars are managed
by another entity (and as there are many diffferent repos...)</mavenRant>

directories failing due windows filesystem semantics.
