Subject RE: Axis Build System - Possible conversion to Maven
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2003 15:17:18 GMT

+1.  If its just a matter of providing an XML file for Maven to use in the tree, no problem.

I am still -1 on changing the build system away from ant.

Dan, we really do want your help with Axis, just on the laundry list of code problems we need
to address.  I just think Axis has already gone through a (somewhat) painful "build improvement"
project and I have no taste for another one.

I see absolutely no reason why a project.xml file could not be 
committed.  Maybe others will find value in it, maybe they won't. 
Either way, you obvious have an itch to scratch, so please provide a patch.
