It's allready done (by hand) ?

it was the idea.

To modularise we should use modules layout ie :


-- catalina

-- catalina-ant

-- catalina-ha

-- jasper

-- jasper-jdt


So some changes in the actual source layout.

we could also provide ant scripts to build also from this new layout.

Could you comment why maven is not the welcome here, ASF JackRabbit or
ApacheDS are pretty large projects and allready use it.

I don't want to start a pros/cons maven, but it will ease :

- build TC from scratch

- upload artifact to maven repos

- fit finelly with IC tools, like Hudson or TeamCity

- maven tools like maven-bundle-plugin will ease the OSGI bundle stuff
