I'm just wondering... what are people using for project management for dm server projects?
The dm server samples use ant + ivy, which is alright but I'm not a big fan of ant.
Is everybody else using maven then? Are the spring bundles and related bundles available in a maven repository?
I really like dm server, but I'm still not clear on the best way to create and manage projects for it.

I found a good explanation in the spring dm documentation. I do think this kind of information should also be at least passively mentioned in the spring dm server docs.

we use maven for our platform.
We did not yet run into major problems.
The big difference between osgi based bundles and e.g. tomcat based bundles is that you have to create custom bundles for custom libraries.
Creating bundles is a bit like gambling. Although the bnd tool helps you to analyze dependencies, you usually have to setup osgi bundle on your own (if not in s2ap rep.) which can easily become frustrating and time consuming.
