Subject RE: Request - Native Java "Script" Support
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2012 11:53:51 GMT


I am now compiling and packaging axis2-1.6.2 a series of maven and ant scripts ..all libraries
i have are version specific so
my recommendation is to go with maven 3+
and <configure> the call to build.xml on your specific target

pom.xml would contain

 <ant antfile="${basedir}/build.xml">
                  <target name="test"/>
