[Mondrian] Ready to move to maven?

I pulled this down locally to try it out.  The ant test target has 6 more failures compared to current lagunitas branch.  I haven't investigated them all, but they look to be all around file resource paths.  Also tried the mvn test target.  It resulted in 55 failures and 33 errors.  I haven't done any investigation into those.  I'll try to keep hacking at this in my spare cycles.

It is nice being able to load the project in IntelliJ via the pom.

I have created a pull request https://github.com/pentaho/mondrian/pull/358 that upgrades to maven. The code builds builds from a clean sandbox and many tests pass. It still uses ant for some tasks.

It still needs some tire-kicking before it gets committed. But since I have moved a lot of files in adopting the standard maven directory structure, I urge you to move on this quickly, and get it checked into the lagunitas branch before other non-compatible changes are made in lagunitas.

Hi Julian,

Thanks for diving back into your Maven work, now would be a perfect time to get this in as we are in the early stages of our next release cycle.  I will put you in touch with our build team, they are eager to help you out here.

Subject: [Mondrian] Ready to move to maven?

I migrated the lagunitas branch over to use maven rather than ant, in a branch called maven, last October. I reorganized the files into a standard maven directory structure. Everything seemed to build and run properly, and ant even continued to work.

It's no surprise that bit rot has occurred. After a simple rebase of the latest lagunitas, the maven branch no longer works.

Is now the right time to move to maven? I'll take the time to re-do the maven conversion if there is interest.

There's some other work I'd like to do on Mondrian, but the maven conversion is a prerequisite.
