Subject Re: Creating Ant script to check Cyclic Dependency
Date Thu, 27 Jun 2013 05:44:10 GMT
I don't want to start this old debate in this list, but I won't recommend
Maven. I've used it and I will always prefer Ant/Ivy over Maven.
Maven seems attractive at first and the convention-over-configuration
approach is quite interesting, but I find Maven efficient only in simple
cases where you don't need to tweak plugin configuration. In big projects,
sometimes builds are not reproducible when they don't simply break. And
when Maven builds are down, debugging them becomes hell because the
documentation you are quoting is often succinct when not lacking.
That was my 2c (and again, I don't want to start a flame war), but IMHO
Maven is a bad choice. Now, it's always good to be presented with an
alternative and the choice is yours !

Best regards,
Mathieu
