Maven just won't die -- WTF is Takari?


Published on

In this webinar, we touch on:

- Polyglot support: Ruby, Groovy, and Scala DSLs. These have all been actively worked on in the recent past, especially the Ruby and Scala DSLs.

- Full incremental support: the complete Maven lifecycle including an incremental command line compiler based on JDT, all with m2e integration

- Aggressive parallelization: a new parallelization mode that also optimizes scheduling based on critical path analysis

- Generations: a new form of continuous delivery for Maven -- Smart delta protocol and no more SNAPHOTs!

- Shell: long-lived CLI process for Maven

Much of this work is functional, and the new parallelization mode and generations support are actively being used in production. We are still iterating on these specific features but they show a lot of promise. Where all of this code eventually lands is a question for the Maven development community. All of this work was developed outside of Apache, and how easy it is to integrate back into the Maven project remains to be seen. At the very least there is a lot of very interesting work and we wanted to start the dialog because Maven just isn't going to die :).

Maven just won't die -- WTF is Takari?

  1. 1. WTF is Takari? Jason van Zyl @takari_io
  2. 2. Agenda ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ Incremental build Aggressive parallelization Generations Polyglot for Maven Shell
  3. 3. It’s too hard for organizations to efficiently deliver JVM-based software
  4. 4. The problem with delivery What is an application and how do you reason about it? Why you might be here today? External Services Internal Components 3rd Party Components Configuration Machine v1.0
  5. 5. Software Delivery Chain Developer checks code into the SCM IDE Developer requests components from Repoman and the components are delivered to the developer 2 CI checks code out of the SCM SCM CI 3 CI instructs build tool to perform a build 4 1 Repository Central Build 5 Build tool deploys components to repository manager Provisioning system requests components and configuration from Nexus. 6 Provisioner 7 Agent Provisioning system provisions apps and components to the agents managing runtimes Agent Agent

  7. 7. Incremental build
  8. 8. Incremental build We’ve supported incremental build in m2eclipse for quite a while ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ m2eclipse is capable of operating on a single resource with a single Mojo call -- very efficient We implemented incremental build for Maven on the CLI We implemented a custom Guice scope for Maven’s core to @Inject what we call a BuildContext We Implemented versions the Mojos for the standard lifecycle including and incremental CLI compiler based on Eclipse JDT

OutputStream os = context.newOutputStream(inputFile, outputFile); try { // generation of output file contents is outside of scope of BuildContext API // likewise, Message object, if any, is application specific and is not part of BuildContext API Collection<Message> messages = generateOutput(inputFile, os); } } } // record error and warning messages generated during input file processing for (Message message : messages) { context.addMessage(inputFile, message.getLine(), message.getColumn(), message.getText(), BuildContext.SEVERITY_ERROR, null); } } finally { os.close(); }

Polyglot for Maven Maven can support different formats and even DSLs ‣ A lot of work has been done recently on the Ruby and Scala DSLs, but there is support for Groovy, Atom, YAML, and Clojure as well ‣ ‣ We cut the 0.9.0 release yesterday and it’s available to try The code and instructions are available at
