Throughts on the build tool

HI guys,

I recently checked out the source code of JOSM.
Saw that it is based on ANT. I totally understand what the original reason was (because JOSM is a quite mature project and ant was THE thing back then).
But what are your thoughts on moving to an more modern build tool like gradle?

regards

I think that it's extremely unlikely that anyone involved with JOSM development will read this here - you're probably better off trying to reach out to the JOSM developers directly.

This idea has already been rejected as part of a Google Summer of Code project:

Good luck.

Re: Throughts on the build tool

There was also a discussion about doing that: https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/8269

Result: Probably not (or not now)
