Hi Grant,

We tried Maven, but found it extremely tedious - yes I admit we are
influenced by the commercial nature of our work and have to tradeoff our
purist software engineering tendencies with pragmatic deadlines :)
My colleges, John wrote this up on the topic:

In a nutshell - setting up Maven is not for someone who is pressed for time.
I would really like to see the mythical "one-click installer" - run it, it
discovers your development environment & IDE, then places JAR and libs where
they belong, adds classpaths and project files as necessary, and starts your
IDE with the Lucene project already loaded.

This will greatly increase the number of developers who can try their hand
with Lucene, I believe.


PS. Were you at SIGIR? Would be interested on your thoughts on the Turpin &
Scholer (RMIT Melbourne, AU) paper!

Hey Dejan,

Don't know if it is an option for you, but I use Maven for all of  
this.  You specify your Project model along with all of its  
dependencies and it has plugins that create project files for  
IntelliJ and Eclipse (not sure about NetBeans).  With a little  
tweaking, it setups our version control, source locations, compiler/ 
debugger settings, etc.
