ruby maven

this is a ruby wrapper around maven-3.3.x and comes with the ruby DSL from Polyglot Maven preconfigured.

command line

just execute it with rmvn or

$ rmvn --version
Polyglot Maven Extension 0.1.13
Apache Maven 3.3.3 (7994120775791599e205a5524ec3e0dfe41d4a06; 2015-04-22T13:57:37+02:00)
Maven home: /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.2.0/gems/ruby-maven-libs-3.3.3/maven-home
Java version: 1.8.0_51, vendor: Oracle Corporation
Java home: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_51.jdk/Contents/Home/jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8
OS name: "mac os x", version: "10.10.5", arch: "x86_64", family: "mac"

using it from ruby

require 'ruby-maven'

RubyMaven.exec( '--version' )

this will run the same maven as the above command execution.

Mavenfile, pom.rb and pom.xml

the polyglot maven part will look for either of those files

  • Mavenfile
  • pom.rb
  • pom.xml

in this order. the first two are ruby files using a ruby DSL for POM.

best see these files for a more examples on this ruby DSL

all three examples are equivalent to pom.xml.

Mavenfile and pom.rb are the same thing, one is closer to ruby and the other is closer to maven in its naming.
