Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2657) Auto-generate POM templates from Ant builds
Date Wed, 22 Sep 2010 03:48:33 GMT


Chris Male commented on LUCENE-2657:

bq. If nothing else, it is abundantly clear that there are more than a couple of Lucene/Solr
developers that don't want to put in any effort for Maven's sake.

If developers are willing to add the dependency jar and lines to the ant file but not add
the 5 lines to the pom, then I'm not sure any of these attempts are really going to succeed.
 Sure many developers don't like maven, but I haven't seen any straight out refuse to use
it yet (unless I misread the large email thread), they are just demanding ease of use.

My concern here is this process is going in the opposite direction by making it vastly more
complicated.  What your proposing sounds like a great app independent of Lucene - a way to
convert from an ant build system to a maven one, but I'm unsure its something that should
be part of a build process instead of a once off thing.  Certainly when we are trying to simplify
said build process.

> Lucene and Solr modules' POM templates are manually maintained, and so are not always
in sync with the dependencies used by the Ant build. 
> It should be possible to auto-generate POM templates using build tools extending Ant's
[BuildListener|] interface,
similarly to how the [ant2ide|] project generates eclipse
project files.
