Subject Re: Do we need Ant builds for our samples? was: SCA source tree and build structure

My gut tells me there has to be a way to make our maven build easier
than it is right now, and I think we are on track to do that.  So if
we can make the maven build simple enough to run then that should be
good enough, no?

If, however, we can't get to the point where you can just run "mvn
install" to build a sample, then I think we could investigate simpler
ant scripts.
