Perl Maven Access Module?by qazwart (Scribe)
|on Oct 07, 2010 at 20:26 UTC||Need Help??|
qazwart has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am not necessarily a big fan of Maven, but I like the concept of the Maven release repository. I use Ant and Ivy, for example, and we store our own releases in our local Maven repository to give our tech team easy access to our software, so they can install it.
I'd like to be able to add files to our Maven release repository and be able to pull releases out via Perl. I searched the CPAN repository for a Maven API, but didn't find one.
I could write one my self, but that's hard work (lazy). Besides, I've got better things to do (hubris), and I don't want this to take forever (impatient).
On second thought, this might be my chance to make a big splash and get noticed. If I wrote a Perl Maven Repository module, it could be the only one in CPAN. I would become rich and famous, and maybe Sheryl a few cubes down from me will finally notice me.
So, is there a CPAN module that talks to a Maven repository, or do I have to roll my own? And, how is Jackrabbit related to Maven? When I searched for Maven, a lot of stuff for Jackrabbit got pulled up.
