Subject Lifecycle for interactive development
Date Fri, 13 May 2011 13:10:28 GMT
Hello, Maven,

Is there a need for a Maven lifecycle supporting interactive development tasks?

The default Maven lifecycle is designed to support statically-compiled
languages like Java. But the rise of alternative languages on the JVM
languages has led to plugins that perform tasks outside of the default
lifecycle. Groovy, Scala, and Clojure all have plugins with custom
goals for tasks like launching an interactive console, running a
script, or evaluating an expression.

Would it be possible to standardize around a custom lifecycle that
would support some or all these tasks?

Thanks for listening, comments welcome.
