I was skeptical of Maven at first, but since then I've changed my
mind. I urge you to give Maven a try, DavidB has set it up such that
it's really very painless.
+1.... I too wasnt sure about maven to begin with (having come from an
ANT background) but the conclusion is that it freaking rocks! David B
has done some sterling work and it really is a pleasure to work with
compared to ANT. So much so im moving my other ANT based projects over
to maven. Converted 100%!
