      Description

      Maven2 would give us:

      • automatic dependency download from ibiblio (remove problems with lgpl libraries we use in tests)
      • generation of .project and .classpath for eclipse and other specific IDE tasks (IDEA): JAMES-439
      • simpler integration with third party tools (clover, continuos integration)
      • standard folder structure: more similar to our sister project "Apache Directory", we can reuse their installer and modules.
      • integrated site generation (good thing if we plan to make our release cycles faster)

          I added a basic pom.xml to create our current site.
          The pom also include all the dependencies needed to build and run tests/build reports for james-server but it should not be used as the official way to build it because it currently depend on not-verified third party libraries from ibiblio.
