In the latest project packages for example modules, do the Maven pom files provide the same functionality as the Ant build files did in the earlier versions?
Specifically, I’m not seeing:
– Inclusion of non-java files in the module jar.
– The option to explode jars in the projects /lib folder and include them in the project jar. (I can easily live without this, I think, but then again, maybe it served some purpose not obvious to me.)
– The option to deploy a module to the local Ignition gateway.
As a general comment about Maven, I find myself wondering why we don’t write our own Java routines for building our modules in a configurable manner. These routines would not be universally useful, but they would be as flexible as we need them to be. And they would have to be easier to work with than Maven–or so it seems.
