Subject Re: Question about Maven IDLJ plugin
Date Sun, 26 Sep 2010 20:27:50 GMT
Hi Chris!

There is a trick which lots of maven plugins use to utilise GPLed tools: simply invoke them
via commandline. So instead directly calling those GPLed classes, we just invoke java gpledproject.jar
params...

See cobertura-maven-plugin as example.

It should be a save thing to invoke Jacorb this way.

LieGrue,
strub
