Experimenting with Maven

Do you have a license for Saxon PE or EE? Do you use Maven? Would a Maven repository for Saxon PE or EE be useful to you? (Saxon HE is already released into Maven Central.)

I’ve sometimes thought it would be useful, and I fielded a customer request for it, so I’ve tried to set it up. It’s a bit experimental at the moment because I’m not entirely certain that I understand all of the metadata files that are expected in a Maven repository.

I’ve only packaged up the Java release of Saxon 10.2 for the moment, but if I can get it usefully configured, I’m happy to try to make it part of the normal release process. We’re thinking of putting some of the older releases up as well to simplify regression testing.

The experimental Maven repository is at https://dev.saxonica.com/maven/.

If you can try it out and let me know if you have trouble (or if you don’t!), I’d appreciate it.
