Now that the mavenized build thirdparty seems to be working ok, I would like to gradually replace more parts of the ant build with maven.
I'm thinking this could be done one or two modules at a time until they are all using maven. So for example, the module "main" is normally the first to run in the app server build. So I will try to have the main build file call the maven build just for this module before running the rest of the modules with the normal ant build. This should allow the integration to happen more gradually so that I can work on one or two issues at a time instead of trying to replicate the whole thing at once.
