Re: [tycho-user] Are there disadvantages to pomless builds?

Hi Steinar,

We have been using pomless builds for a while now in the Trace Compass project. I can't speak of using it for e4 RCP applications or GEF4 but it's been great to not have to maintain both MANIFEST.MF and pom.xml. The only thing we are having a problem with is intermittent build failures (like 1 in 20) see Since we are doing quite a few builds every day (30-40), this affects us particularly. I plan on looking into the issue in the very short term and at least narrow it down. But I think for projects that have much less build activity, this won't be an issue and the pros definitely outweigh the cons.

Are there disadvantages to pomless builds?

Are there things the pomless builds can't do?

Specifically: I want to create an e4 RCP application using GEF4 that
includes in its target platform a non-eclipse OSGi bundle that is
fetched using a maven dependency.

Is this possible to accomplish with a pomless build? And does anyone
know of an example of this?

Or should I use a fully POM'd tycho setup for this? (I have something
that sort-of works for pre e4 eclipse.  The tricky bit has always been
getting a working target platform definition when I move to a newer
eclipse release)
