Not sure if this is the right place to ask the question, but I'll ask anyway. (If it is not, please let me know!)
I'm working in a team of 5 programmers on a project which we have to start on scratch.
1) How do I convince people to use a build tool (ie.,
maven) to build the package?
Three out of five people in my team want to just let Eclipse build the project! The reason was something along the line of they are running Windows, and so it is crappy to work on command line, plus it is not as convenient.
I remember feeling something similar to a 'heart-attack' when other members disagreed with my suggestion of using a build-tool saying that "The objective is to deliver an executable, so let's just let Eclipse do it and we should all use Eclipse to be consistent!"
2) Version Control System. How would you settle a debate on VCS where the only criteria people are using is whether the system offers GUI for doing stuff?
I'm admittedly still young in the field, so I have few experience, but even fewer skills in dealing with team members.
Any advice/suggestion would be greatly appreciated!
