since the maven build does more or less its job now, it is time to ask if
there is something which is really annoying or something which got dropped
during the whole migration.
please speak out and let me know. for a start I add my wish-list now
* get rid of build.xml ;)
* lib/jruby.jar and the jruby-core-complete artifact are identical - needs
to be build only ONCE
* each of ext/* should look like usual gem project and jruby should utilize
those gems to setup the resp. parts in lib/ruby/**
* default gems should be cherry-picked (bin-stubs and specifications) from
downloaded gems - I got stuck here with jruby-maven-plugin can not handle
gems with platform **universal-java** like in krypt-core.
* use ruby-maven (gem) where I can easily embed ruby scripts inside the
pom.rb or Mavenfile. it also makes it easy to setup a gem project with
jar-extension and still use `rake build` to build the gem or to `rake
junit` to run junit tests on the java part. it also generates a pom.xml
which works with proper maven.
please comment and ADD to the list whatever you have on your mind !!!
