Re: [tycho-user] [EXTERNAL] Re: Please, make Tycho 1 more Maven friendly

I started using Maven because we wanted to adopt Tycho to ditch PDEbuild. As I’ve grown more comfortable and familiar with Maven I see where Charlie is coming from. The problem other Maven solutions have is they generally lack P2 dependency resolution and Eclipse doesn’t publish their platform to the public Maven repository (or Central). So people developing Equinox and wanting to use traditional Maven process are kind of stuck in the middle.

Rather than focusing on Tycho, a better solution for that would be to contribute to Eclipse Platform/Equinox in order to have the bundles also available as regular artifacts in Maven repos.
