About

Maven is the number one build tool used by developers for more than a decade. Maven stands out among other build tools due to its extremely extensible architecture, which is built on top of the concept "convention over configuration". This has made Maven the de-facto tool used to manage and build Java projects.

This book is a technical guide to the difficult and complex concepts in Maven and build automation. It starts with the core Maven concepts and its architecture, and then explains how to build extensions such as plugins, archetypes, and lifecycles in depth.
