I used reactor for two projects (one small and one big) and hit IMHO a few limitations
+) as far as I know it is not possible to inherit JAR files (B7) but I might be wrong (there was a posting)
+) It is not possible to inherit project.properties and build.properties from the master project
+) Reactor use its own working directory and screws up my testcase since the try to load test resources using a relative path
+) CheckStyle does not find its property file during a reactor build
+) With 50+ subprojects I have memory problems
Therefore I'm triggering my builds not with reactor but still using POM inheritance and POM interpolation .... and wait for the next release ... :-)

Hi all, I have project that is evolving and I was wondering if using reactor will do what I want.
Basically I have two modules in cvs - one for core and one for user interface.
The UI will have several sub-directories for each UI that can be used with the core. ui - tapestry - web-ognl - cocoa ...etc.
What I would like is to define a top-level project.xml and project.properties which adds a dependency for the core jar and any other necessary jars. I would also like to define a top-level maven.xml so that whoever builds can either build all of the ui components or individual ones.
So far, from what I see, this is doable. Now, here's the question: Would it be beneficial to use reactor? Or would it be better to write my own maven.xml.
