Whilst this component hasn’t exactly set the internets on fire can I give another shout out for my ‘mavenize‘ tool. This is a command line tool for ‘mavenizing’ java projects. I have found myself using this a fair bit when I am looking to bring older components into a existing maven java project and it can save a fair bit of faffing around.

Using it is as simple as:

java -jar mavenize-1.0.2.jar -iC:\Development\java\project\original -oC:\Development\java\project\mavenized

I have made some minor recent fixes. If you are interested in looking for a good example of the use of the org.apache.commons.io.DirectoryWalker class then you should take a look at the source code.
