I am using Maven for about 1 year and I see 2 fundamental advantages compared to a pure skript thats calls javac.
- dependency management
- dependency supply via repositories
Sure there are some more because a lot of plugins but lets focus on the repository for now.
Is there something similar to C++? Escpecially the presence of a place where all common used Java jars are stored to access it via the project in an automatic way was pretty cool for me.
With CPAN there is something similar in Perl too.
I do not know such a thing for C++. Does it exist?
