Few Build Successful’s were more satifsactory then the one which you can see in the window below 😉
Finally all the modules that I’ve been working together with the community, including AMP & Alfresco Extension Maven archetypes and the AMP plugin, under one single build, control and with a proper release process, called (almost obviously) Maven Alfresco Lifecycle featuring:
It was time to wrap up all this work (merging m2Alfresco, maven4Alfresco and other Maven Alfresco related activities) in a more usable and sustainable platform for growing it.
As usual, many thanks go to Mao that provided 1st class infrastructure support (and much more 🙂 on the new Nexus Sourcesense repository.
And this being a double advantage, not only for the community but for the growing number of enterprise customers interested in working with Maven on Alfresco.
I would like now to grow it with features already present in some development branches and exciting new improvements like:
- Alfresco Share archetype support (already in 3.x branches)
- SURF / Spring tool suite integration (as Uzi shown us so to be so cool with the new spring-surf)
- Update and improve the quality of the sample contexts to match the latest and greatest capabilities
As said, I see the interest of the community at large around the project is growing so in case you’re interested I suggest you to participate by joining the lists or opening issues.
So just give it a try…it’s two Maven commands away 😉
Would love to hear your thoughts on how to improve the platform and grow it to the next (enterprise) level. Don’t forget to check out the 3.1.0-stripped branch, where a Maven Calm based version is hosted and there’s already a working Alfresco Share sample project.
