Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2099) Move build to Maven
Date Tue, 02 Mar 2010 22:24:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2099?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12840358#action_12840358

Lars Francke commented on HBASE-2099:

I really don't want to start a discussion about Maven vs. Ant. I just like the Maven style
better. It is true that there is a lot of incorrect meta data and we're in the process of
weeding out those dependencies that are really needed. If you use Ant the process is bottom
up. You start with nothing and have to figure out what you need. I'd say it depends on what
you prefer.

1. I don't think that's necessary or even a good idea. As you said: Artifacts aren't allowed
to change (at least in the central repository) so there is really no need to clean the local
repository; it just makes the builds take longer.

2. Can't say a lot about that except that the Wagon and Cargo plugins make it pretty easy
to deploy and run stuff on other machines. But I'm still not sure I can follow you - I haven't
yet done any very complex deployment operations (just deployment to a remote Tomcat etc. with
Cargo) with Maven but if it can be done with Ant it can be done with Maven ;-) Either way:
Maven now seems to do everything we need for HBase but Ant and Ivy worked too.

As to the clean up: The unit tests currently build their stuff in a "build" or "data" directoy.
When we abort a build for whatever reasons those might not be cleaned up and they won't be
picked up by the clean plugin. This is something I'll have to remember to look at.

> This issue is for discussing pros and cons of moving hbase build to Apache Maven.
> Maven, if you take on its paradigm, does a lot for you.  There are also a bunch of nice
plugins that do nice reports on state of project; findbugs, that nice plugin where you can
give out urls that will resolve to lines in source code (a doxygen-like thing ... I've forgotten
its name).  Other examples are a docbook plugin that would do the build inline with doc build.
 We could start up the hbase book using docbook format and the hbase book would ride along
with versions.
> As I see it -- and its a while since I've done this stuff so things may have since changed
-- in the way of an easy move to maven is our src/contrib content.  Maven would have these
as distinct projects pulling in their hbase dependency or, if you wanted to take on the maven
subproject notion, then, hbase would be at same level in build as the contribs -- it would
be a subproject too just built before the others.
