Re: [argouml-dev] Maven release process

Message A lot of projects are moving towards gradle. Usually they're projects that
have nonstandard project layouts. I've used gradle myself on a couple of of
projects. I tend to prefer Maven though because there's no guesswork
involved when it comes to building the project. Clean always cleans,
install always installs, and I don't have to hunt through the build for the
target needed to create executable jars. But that's probably just me. ;-)
