A year ago we started working with Spring, meanwhile we managed to have clearer modules then without Spring .. so thanks for that But where are having the following problem:
With more components (each components is an eclipse project) is seems getting harder to have a good build cycle, therefore I'm asking you some advice on how to organize your componenst / projects within i.e. eclipse. Is it for example a good idee to have a 1 on 1 mapping between a reusable component and an eclipse project .. or is that to much overhead.
The other thing I'm finding confusing is the role of ant or maven is this picture. We definitly need a good building process and nightly builds. I take a glimb at Maven2... it seemed the thing I need together with continium. But I'm veryyy confused on the fact if we still need ant or not if we use maven? That's not clear to me.. some advice would be great
Perhaps the pro's / con's on using ant or maven to manage your project?
It would be great if someone could share how he is using Spring / Components / Projects / continius builds / development cycle in a large project where these components are reused by several projects.
So... get me out of the dark here
