Re: [aspectj-users] There is an AspectJ maven build configuration

One question, just in case: Would PRs against the GitHub repo be okay?

Yes, I think so.  But there are some shenanigans necessary to ensure the commit is signed off for easy acceptance, I discussed it in here with another guy who contributed that way - not even sure we got to a conclusion, but if they are signed off in an easy form for me to integrate, that’ll obviously reduce the time they take to process.

Great news, Andy, thank you so much. This weekend or the next I guess I
will take a look.

It is alive. AspectJ, well overdue, now has as rudimentary maven
build. It builds on the few systems I’ve tried it on although some
of the tests seem to be a bit flaky on windows (I’ve not run the
tests on windows for a long time so I don’t think it is due to the
maven process, it just never used to be this easy to run them on a
different OS). If anyone wants to help polish it, please do, I’m not
a maven guru. There are some of the jar dependencies that need
converting from local jar references to real dependencies from a
repository but I haven’t had a chance to work out the exact version
numbers. You can ‘mvn install’ and it will build
aspectjrt/aspectjweaver/aspectjtools and then you can consume them
from your local repo (although the poms need a bit of work). There is
an installer project that builds the installer distribution we also
make available. I’ve imported it into eclipse using m2e, I haven’t
tried it with IntelliJ - I’d be interested to know if that works.

If nothing else this may make it easier for folks to consume snapshot
builds that include workarounds or early fixes as they can more easily
build/install it locally now.

If anyone wants to try it out, please do, raise bugs, contribute fixes

There are extra benefits I snuck in:
 -- I deleted the projects ending in ‘5’ (created when Java5 was
    separate to Java 1.4) and merged them into the non 5 variants.
 -- bcel-builder is no longer a ’special project’ you had to
    build separately. It is just a regular sub-module
 -- If you do want to run the tests in eclipse, I added a few lines
    explanation in the new README at

I guess the true test of this will be when I try to use it to release
1.9.3 but as it produces the same artifacts, I should be able to use
the same release process there.
