In this article by Brett Porter and Maria Odea Ching, we will take a closer look at some of the plugins from two locations: those hosted as part of the Apache Maven project (http://maven.apache.org/plugins/), and a number of plugins from the Codehaus Mojo project (http://mojo.codehaus.org/plugins.html), which is oriented directly towards Maven plugin development.
Where possible, we will apply the plugins to our example application to see how they can be used in practice, and then cover some of the other use cases and best practices for their use.Read Useful Maven Plugins: Part 1 in full
