Support for Maven?
I am already using ant to build using the SAB / ISJE builder.
I am exploring the use of the Ant Target Processor to invoke existing J2EE processes (installing web servers, etc). I'm not sure how I would detect the build success/fail message from IS, though.
Our development team already uses Maven to do all code builds, so why re-invent the wheel.
Does anyone know if Maven goals are specifically supported (or planned) to be added to the installation sequence? It would certainly be a good idea.
I find it interesting that this posting has gotten 5,500+ reads and no responses :-D
Maven is an incredible tool for creating robust component-based software systems. It's declarative syntax would seem to provide ideal source metadata for direct generation of InstallShield scripts.
Creating and supporting an InstallShield plugin for Maven would be a great way to reach out to the Maven user community, creating interest in the product and well more sales than the cost of the development. I hope the company will put this component on their roadmap.
