Turbine-Maven Proposal


The META plugin implements this proposal!

I'm not sure what the release schedule for Turbine 2.3.1 is, but I'd like to propose/volunteer that the Maven Turbine plugin be finished/documented for the purpose of creating a sample app development directory. I'm willing to attempt the majority of the work to make this happen, but would very much like support from people who are more experienced with Turbine and Maven.

The (In-progress) How-To gives an idea of how this approach would work, as well as references existing documents written by others who have worked on this and related problems. The final procedure should be, much simpler, something like:

  1. Download, Install, and Configure Tomcat (or other servlet container)

  2. Download and Install Maven

  3. Create an empty project directory

  4. Run maven turbine:sample

  5. Edit some XML and properties files

  6. Run maven war or other Maven goal to build and/or deploy a WAR

To some extent this could replace or supplement the TDK. A significant difference (advantage or disadvantage depending on how you look at it) is that it assumes a Servlet container has already/seperately been setup. Obviously, this work would build heavily on past work on the TDK.
