Maven2 about usability ...
By bloggerkedar on Apr 04, 2009
It is ironic that software becomes less usable as it becomes more powerful.
Clearly, Maven 2 is more powerful than ANT as uber-build tool. But look at the snapshot below.
Now, of course the build fails. But a pom.xml is not found is only an INFO message! On the other hand, ANT clearly tells you that build.xml is not found and hence the build failed.
And what the hell does "Cannot execute mojo: resources" mean for someone who starts with Maven 2?
