Hello again,

Currently, jtcl has a build.xml for Ant, which exists only to import maven-build.xml (also targeting Ant), and then also a pom.xml for Maven.

Is there a reason for not just targeting Maven, since it offers the most declarative structure (and support from IDEs), and its file weighs almost half as much as the equivalent descriptor in Ant?

If one has opposition to requiring an existing Maven installation, there is a pretty well accepted "mvnw" wrapper, in the same spirit as "gradlew", which will download the appropriate Maven version and then build with it.

  Just curious,
