Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6671) To use maven for hadoop common builds
Date Thu, 01 Apr 2010 18:21:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6671?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12852490#action_12852490
] 

Lee Tucker commented on HADOOP-6671:
------------------------------------

What it does do is provide a plugin architecture for a whole range of tools instead of having
to roll each one independently into the build.xml.   It provides project structure and actually
improves inter-project communication by managing transitive build dependencies.    Given that
we already rely on net access (and maven repositories) to pull things through Ivy for dependencies,
I'm not exactly sure how Maven makes that any worse.   You had to fill a cache somehow already.

> We are now able to publish hadoop artifacts to the maven repo successfully [ Hadoop-6382]
> Drawbacks with the current approach:
> * Use ivy for dependency management with ivy.xml
> * Use maven-ant-task for artifact publishing to the maven repository
> * pom files are not generated dynamically 
> To address this I propose we use maven to build hadoop-common, which would help us to
manage dependencies, publish artifacts and have one single xml file(POM) for dependency management
and artifact publishing.
> I would like to have a branch created to work on mavenizing  hadoop common.
