I'm not used to the Java / Maven ecosystem, but I'm happy using the Clojure / Leiningen / Clojars one.
So can I simply put the name of a package from Maven.org in my project.clj file, the way I'd put a clojar reference? Or is there more to it?
The short answer - yes.
And yes, you just put package coordinates from Maven to
project.clj and off you go. The translation is trivial. If you have for example
<dependency> <groupId>log4j</groupId> <artifactId>log4j</artifactId> <version>1.2.17</version> </dependency>
project.clj it will look like
:dependencies [[log4j/log4j "1.2.17"]]
