In Detail

Maven ultimately allows for the automation of the build lifecycle and independence from any IDE. You must always be able to build and test any Java project from the command line, using your favorite editor for coding. It is important to control exactly what libraries get distributed with Java projects and to have a standard project template and build process.

Instant Apache Maven Starter will concentrate the most useful information into one single, very compact source.

This book will help the reader to find out what Maven actually is, and will teach the reader how to create and build a new Java application or Web project from scratch and to understand the POM file and Maven project’s coordinates.

The book introduces the reader with useful information so they can quickly get started with using Maven productively through practical but very simple examples, as well as providing some useful tips.

The topics this book covers deal with setting up a local Maven environment, how to start coding and unit-testing in few minutes, and understanding the POM (Project Object Model) file and its naming conventions and internal dependencies, so that any kind of Java project can be managed uniformly and systematically.

Instant Apache Maven Starter will teach you everything you need to get started with Maven immediately with just the very essential information.
