Subject Re: Announcing Mavenizer 1.0.0-alpha-1
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2007 05:06:22 GMT
Hi Cédric,

Looks very cool. Nice work!

I was wondering if you've seen the maven-shared-jar component? http://

This seems like something you could use (and if you have some  
additional features, as it appears you do, you might contribute them  
back). This would help use the same logic for identification across  
multiple applications - the project dependency reports, and Archiva  
for example.

While it dropped down my list recently, I'm about 2/3 done cleaning  
up or "Aardvark" code base which also uses this. It has some similar  
objectives to Mavenizer, but so far seems to have addressed the  
opposite use cases - it has a Swing UI and primarily does things like  
project.xml and build.xml conversion (though dependency selection is  
an important part of that). It might be good to keep in touch?
