How can we improve the newest version of Windward Studios Products?

I need maven support!!!!!

We use maven as build tool. I can't seem to find the maven dependencies. Simply inclusing a lib folder with all the Windward provided jars is of course no viable enterprise solution. That solution is beggin for deployment problems by just dumping unversioned jars into a deployment folder. No can do!

        We use Gradle, and have this issue with Windward and a few other libraries.
        We solved it by having our own repository (Artifactory), where we publish these third party jars. The hard part is dealing with all the dependencies.

        It would really be great to have this in maven central.

        Modern and professional java developers use maven offen. It is almost impossible to use continious integration server like Jenkins at cloudbees.com without maven dependencies managmetn. Keeping jars in source controll system like svn is not an option. Windward artifact has a lot of dependencies with specific version requvarements. By publishing snapshot version you can give access to betta vesion of upcoming product.
