Migrate Spark build from Ant to Maven

Description

Spark can benefit from this if only by easier deployment of next Smack version by just specifying new Smack version instead of copying new jars. Moving to a structured setup, as provided by Maven, will also make it easier for new developers to work with the code base.

Merged to the master branch. Further changes should be filed as new tickets.

Can you do a blog post? I would have a hard time to explain what Maven is and what it changes for developers But based on your post i will make something similar for the future 2.9.0 release post (shorter variant).

Yeah, why not. Seems to be working fine. We should do a blogpost though, as this might annoy a couple of developers, if they don't see this coming.

This means merging Maven branch into master? I guess we can do this.
