I have read today that the ant plugin is not supported after base core 18. Is this decision final and what are other java users migrating to? I see that the obvious alternatives of maven and gradle are also deprecated post core18.
Was the functionality of the plugin in core18 a good development story for you or did you miss anything? We are looking for more feedback before moving forward with it.
For me it was excellent! I had an existing Java project with our own developed source code and also incorporating many external java libraries. this project used to run on traditional ubuntu. There were minimal changes required by me to port it over to run on Ubuntu Core. I would love to see it continued in more recent bases.
@mr_cal want to take this one?
