Cause for aneurysm

I think working with maven is going to give me an aneurysm. Say you want to compile your code for Java 1.6. Seems like a simple task. In most build systems it is actually trivial, except in maven.

In ant, you add two attributes to the javac tag.

<javac destdir="${target.dir}/classes"

In buildr, it’s even simpler. = '1.6'

But what about maven you ask? Yes you knew it was coming. It’s
completely obnoxious what you have to do.


pom.xml files are just painful. Maven I hate you.
