Building Hadoop 1.2.1 with Maven

I have been using Hadoop 1.2.1 from recent past. I wanted to add my own functionality to Hadoop-common. However, the docs for building the hadoop source and developing are available only for latest versions of Hadoop. I was able to compile the release 2.4.0 with Maven by following the tutorial. But now I wanted to compile my 1.2.1. And that doesn't seem to be a maven project at all. There are no pom.xmls.

So if anyone has done that before, and if you could share the steps / web links for developing 1.2.1 branch, I would be grateful.

Thanks in advance.


Add the following to your pom.xml, inside your project tag:
