Subject RE: noob confusion about dependencies and repositories
Date Sat, 06 Oct 2012 23:04:17 GMT
I am guilty for being lazy.  I really hate all this build config stuff and
with maven, git and Jenkins, plus FindBugs and PMD in all three
environments, it gets to me.  I am totally up and running, minus some issues
as I split my project apart that I am working on.  If I do go for the public
maven repos, I will be sure to read the books.  You have given me a crash
course on it and I can us it effectively now.

Now, back to coding, which is what I really like to do (minus a trip back
into JBoss land).
