We are now able to publish hadoop artifacts to the maven repo successfully [ Hadoop-6382]
Drawbacks with the current approach:
- Use ivy for dependency management with ivy.xml
- Use maven-ant-task for artifact publishing to the maven repository
- pom files are not generated dynamically
To address this I propose we use maven to build hadoop-common, which would help us to manage dependencies, publish artifacts and have one single xml file(POM) for dependency management and artifact publishing.
I would like to have a branch created to work on mavenizing hadoop common.
