Apache Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on the concept of a project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project's build, reporting, and documentation from a central piece of information.

In a multi-module project, libraries need to share transitive relations with each other. Maven eliminates this need by reading the project files of dependencies to figure out their inter-relations and other related information. Apache Maven Dependency Management provides guidelines to help readers optimize the POM and its dependencies. The book teaches readers how to use profiles, POM, parent POM, and modules along with how to share transitive relations and how to visualize dependencies.

Readers will also learn how to increase build speed and decrease archive size as well as how to set, rationalize, and exclude transitive dependencies and how to migrate projects to Maven including projects with exotic dependencies.

The following chapters are covered in this book:

Chapter 1: Basic Dependency Management

Chapter 2: Dependency Mechanism and Scopes

Chapter 3: Dependency Designation (advanced)

Chapter 4: Migration of Dependencies to Apache Maven

Chapter 5: Tools within Your IDE

Chapter 6: Release and Distribute

Appendix: Useful Public Repositories

This book will be of huge benefit to anybody working with Java or Java EE projects who wants to take advantage of Maven dependency management. This book is also particularly useful for developers and architects. Readers need to be well versed with Maven and its basic functionalities if they wish to get the most out of this book.
