Subject Re: Upload arbitrary directories to maven repositories
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2013 14:04:44 GMT
Maven might be a good solution if your components are packaged as jar 
files and your build just pulled in the "right" jar files.

If you are pulling in source code and building, then your alternatives 
to a file server might range from a CMS or database to a source control 
system like svn or git or.....

What is it about the file server that prompts you to want to change?
