Mavenization

Filed under: OpenSource,Software — stephane @ 10:37 pm

I originally was part of the Maven project when it started a few years ago. I found it was interesting at this time as I had been working for a lot of time to deploy a complete build system that was using Gump in my company. Incidentally I had other things to think about in my life, but I was also quickly drowning under the huge number of commits that was going through frenetically so I stepped off. About 2 years later it seems to get close to the 1.0 version, so I tried to install it as a pilot project. That was reasonably easy, but I’m amazed at the number of dependencies it requires (which is pretty interesting when for, some security reasons, the build machine you use is not connected to the internet). I also absolutely love the way it runs, or more exactly does not run without giving an error message (or when it does, a meaningful one).

Cruising without control

Filed under: OpenSource,Software — stephane @ 9:53 pm

In a year, things haven’t changed that much. I needed to install a daily build with automatic reporting. I quickly added a simple one with a cron that was publishing the Ant XML log (I actually noticed that Ant was not logging system properties since December 2001. Oops:(). Anyway, out of curiosity, I wanted to try out CruiseControl that supposedly went through a lot of changes. I was for a rough ride. I guess that not many people are using it as the doc is completly wrong and outdated, the build system is a mess and the configuration is extremely redundant and undocumented. And why do they absolutely need to provide I don’t know how many publishing tasks (email, scp, ftp, xslt…) when it would be SO simple to call a Ant build file that does all that for you ? It’s open source but I’m angry !

Shark depletions

Filed under: France — stephane @ 10:25 pm

It’s depressing but seems to be consistent with the feedback I have had in various places. It looks like I’d better go diving now before we all see a different ecosystem and a totally empty sea. I also saw on TV yesterday how US aquariophily is depleting the ecosystem in the Vanuatu islands where tens of thousands of fishes and tons of coral are being delivered to the US by air cargos.

Blue Planet

Filed under: France — stephane @ 10:18 pm

I went to see Blue Planet, currently in the theaters and I must say that it is awesome. The movie is based on shots from the series and it is a BBC/Discovery Channel co-production. When I was in South Africa, I wanted to buy the DVD as Fred Richardson showed me some amazing samples of it. The 3 DVD box-set is currently at 19.99 at Amazon UK. You will see a bait ball (feeding frenzy with whales, sharks, dolphins and albatros) obviouslly filmed during the sardine run in South Africa. I also believe the stingray school was filmed in the Poor Knights islands in New Zealand as it felt somewhat familiar.

I’m not expecting to have many vacations this year, but I was thinking I may attempt to climb kilimanjaro before 2005. Anyone interested ?
