update build system
Project: JBoss Transaction Manager
Issue Type: Task
Security Level: Public (Everyone can see)
Components: Build System
Affects Versions: 4.7.0
Reporter: Jonathan Halliday
Assignee: Jonathan Halliday
Fix For: 4.8.0
The ant build scripts for Arjuna[Core|JTA|JTS] are ancient, contain a lot of unnecessary
complexity and duplication and generally offend and upset me. Their days are numbered.
Rework the build system to:
- be easier to read and modify
- use 'modern' ant features such as import and macrodef to reduce duplication,
exploiting the regularity of the module structure in our layout.
- maintain the same top level target names and more or less the same results, so scripts
that use it don't have to change.
- make the module dependencies clearer, as a prelude to using some form of dependency
management (e.g. ivy/maven)
