Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2099) Move build to Maven
Date Tue, 02 Mar 2010 11:05:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2099?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12840111#action_12840111

Steve Loughran commented on HBASE-2099:

No, the metadata is often getting worse. Old stuff stays the same, and if you look at things
like commons-logging 1.1.1 its dependency graph includes now pulls in servlets 2.3 while v
1.0.4 didn't. 
Whatever tool you use, treat the dependency data as a hint rather than something to blindly
depend on. Better to explicitly pull in everything you need. And when you release, audit your
metadata before you ship, as you aren't allowed to change it.

1. ~/.m2/repository ~/.maven/repository. For Ivy I'd go for ~/.ivy and ~/.ivy2. You can do
a full rm -rf or just purge your artifact tree. Either way, good to do for clean builds, especially
the release VM.

2. The issue is just that when your build process involves creating RPMs and scp-ing them
to VMs that you ask the cloud infrastructure for as part of the test run you are on your own,
whatever tooling you have to hand.

3. Yes. Like I said, I'm not taking sides, just emphasising risk.

> 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.
