Subject [jira] Commented: (MANTTASKS-71) running m2 inside Ant
Date Tue, 14 Apr 2009 11:24:52 GMT


Simone Gianni commented on MANTTASKS-71:

Another use case is a project that builds with Ant but wants to distribute on a Maven repo.
In this case calling deploy:deploy-file is by far easier and safer than building the repo
structure by hand from Ant. I'm currently doing this for Ecplise AspectJ and using an Ant
exec task to call Maven, which works but is quite ugly.

> I'm thinking out loud now, but given that we have the artifact and pom tasks, and m2
is embeddalbe - for those still using Ant as their primary environment, but might want some
m2 projects we could have an m2 task. The artifact tasks (whould could hopefully install themselves
a bit more easily in future) could pull down the necessary m2 libraries and fire it up to
run goals.
