Description Jesse Glick 2011-10-31 16:25:57 UTC
At least in the context of NBM projects, users have requested a tool to take an existing source tree containing Ant-based projects and convert it into a Maven aggregator. Would need to examine nbproject/ and similar metadata and try to produce pom.xml equivalents, while compiling a to-do list of untranslatable things such as custom build.xml targets. Needs to have an SPI for different Ant-based project types, and for different aspects of a single project type such as JAXB bindings.

Experimenting with this in maven_translator_204465 branch in core-main.
Comment 2 Martin Balin 2016-07-07 08:39:19 UTC
This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
