Maven Ant Tasks
The Mavent Ant Tasks allow several of Maven's artifact handling features to be used
from within an Ant build. These include:
* <Dependency management> - including transitive dependencies, scope recognition and SNAPSHOT handling
* <Artifact deployment> - deployment to a Maven repository (file integrated, other with extensions)
* <POM processing> - for reading and writing a Maven 2 <<<pom.xml>>> file
The Ant tasks can be downloaded from the {{{./download.html} download page}}.
* System Requirements
| <<JDK>> | JDK version 1.5 or above is required (This is due to dependencies on internal Maven libraries.)
| <<Ant>> | Ant version 1.6.x, 1.7.x or 1.8.x is required
* Usage
General instructions for installing and using the Maven Ant Tasks can be found on the
{{{./installation.html}installation page}} and the {{{./usage.html}usage page}} respectively.
Some more specific use cases are described in the examples given below. Last but not least,
users occasionally contribute additional examples, tips or errata to the
{{{}project's wiki page}}.
* Examples
Several common usage examples are provided for the following tasks:
* {{{./examples/dependencies.html}Dependencies task}}
* {{{./examples/install-deploy.html}Install and Deploy tasks}}
* {{{./examples/pom.html}Pom task}}
* {{{./examples/write-pom.html}WritePom task}}
* {{{./examples/mvn.html}Mvn task}}
* Getting Help
In case you still have questions regarding the Maven Ant Tasks usage, please have a look at the {{{./faq.html}FAQ}} and feel
free to contact the {{{./mail-lists.html}user mailing list}}. The posts to the mailing list are archived and could
already contain the answer to your question as part of an older thread. Hence, it is also worth browsing/searching
the {{{./mail-lists.html}mail archive}}.
If you feel like the Ant tasks are missing a feature or have a defect, you can fill a feature request or bug report in our
{{{./issue-tracking.html}issue tracker}}. When creating a new issue, please provide a comprehensive description of your
concern. Especially for fixing bugs it is crucial that the developers can reproduce your problem. For this reason,
entire debug logs, Ant build scripts or most preferably little demo projects attached to the issue are very much appreciated.
Of course, patches are welcome, too. Contributors can check out the project from our
{{{./source-repository.html}source repository}} and will find supplementary information in the
{{{}guide to helping with Maven}}.
