I’ve been taking a long look at Maven 2, and while it seems like it’s a really great tool it also seems like there’s a lot missing. My first gripe with Maven is that there is no downloadable documentation that can be read offline (at least that I could find anyway). This is a real pain in the ass when you’re trying to read up on Maven and you don’t have a live internet connection. Second, the JARs in the repository seem a bit out of date. Furthermore, it also seems that Maven 2 isn’t getting as much attention as Maven 1.x. as many of the Maven plugins have yet to ported to Maven 2. Maven 2 BTW, is a rewrite of Maven 1. This is too bad, because on the surface, Maven 2 looks like a huge improvement over Maven 1.x. I’m really interested in working with Maven 2 but I can’t for the life of me figure out how I can use either the AspectJ AJC compiler or the JBoss AOPC compiler with Maven. Even under Maven 1, this process seems a bit convoluted. Any suggestions?
