Subject RE: Plugin for updating external XML file content
Date Mon, 01 Feb 2010 18:08:06 GMT
Hello Frank.

Using too many tools could make project too complicated. I saw a project
with maven, ant and .bat files. It was tricky:)
If something could be solved using maven only -- we should do so. Ant-script
at least requires ant to be installed on platform.
If something cannt be solved using existing maven plugins -- we should make
decision between creating maven plugin and using ant script, because ant
script is better than shell script for example (because of its
cross-platform nature). But I am sure that 99% of our issues could be solved
using maven only. But that’s my imho, and its probably not a best practice.

What do you see as the value of completely eliminating ant use from your
Maven project. I see ant as a tool that is supported and may be appropriate
for some situations.
To have a policy that rules out a useful tool seems counterproductive.
