Subject Re: What's left to do for Maven migration?

Hi Dale,

I think I found out what’s going on:
In general all is setup correctly. The generated console application is also build correctly
and seems to be functional. 

The only problem is that the example uses the HttpServer class in the server module to start
the server. In the old build this referenced the war file in the servlets module relative
to the server module. I cleaned that up. Unfortunately now whenever you run the HttpServer,
this expects a target/war-resources directory containing a servlets.war file inside. Eventually
we should think of a way to do this bundling of the servlet.war differently.

I committed a change to the pom, that ensures all is in place for the edgent-sampes-topology

All examples I tested seemed to work with that. 

I also added code to throw an exception in case the war file isn’t found at all (which was
the real problem)

    Hi Chris/team,
    Since I’m going to be on vacation for the next two weeks I wanted to send out an update,
    I’ve committed a lot of things to the PR over the last couple of days and I've updated
the wiki so hopefully the TODOs are accurate/complete https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/EDGENT/Maven+vs+Gradle
    To restate, IMO we’re working towards getting the PR in a good enough state so that
we can merge it and then pretty quickly work on making a real release (if for no other reason
as a forcing function since after the merge the old build tooling is broken).
    A couple of higher priority TODOs that come to mind:
    - Item 15.h getting the Edgent console working (HttpServer,war,get-edgent-jars.sh)
    - Item 12.d DEVELOPMENT.md
    - Item 10.c setup Nexus for receiving Edgent jars?
    - Item 18 build requires Java7
    - Item 8 Errors importing info Eclipse
    - How much of a dry run of a release can be done before merging the PR - in order to really
assess the state of things?
       Can we get as far as creating and actually staging fake-RC source bundles and jars…
that can then be evaluated?
    As another near-term sanity/progress check it would be great if another contributor/user
could clone your repo (https://github.com/chrisdutz/incubator-edgent <https://github.com/chrisdutz/incubator-edgent>)
and then:
    - git checkout feature/maven
    - follow the info in the README in the top of the repo (not README.md) to build the Edgent
SDK and then build and run some samples and report how it went.
    It would then be double great if someone could start working on an new version of Getting
Started (https://edgent.apache.org/docs/edgent-getting-started <https://edgent.apache.org/docs/edgent-getting-started>)
appropriate for the new environment :-) … retaining the current version as is.
