Book Summary of Maven: The Definitive Guide
Written by Maven creator Jason Van Zyl and his team at Sonatype, this handbook clearly explains how this tool can bring order to software development projects.

For too long, developers have worked on disorganized application projects, where every part seemed to have its own build system, and no common repository existed for information about the state ofthe project. Now there's help. The long-awaited official documentation to Maven is here. Written by Maven creator Jason Van Zyl and his team at Sonatype, Maven: The Definitive Guideclearly explains how this tool can bring order to your software development projects. Maven is largely replacing Ant as the build tool of choice for large open source Java projects because, unlike Ant, Maven is also a projectmanagement tool that can run reports, generate a project website, and facilitate communication among members of a working team. To use Maven, everything you need to know is in this guide. The first partdemonstrates the tool's capabilities through the development, from ideation to deployment, of several sample applications -- a simple software development project, a simple web application, a multi-module project, and amulti-module enterprise project. The second part offers a complete reference guide that includes: The POM and Project RelationshipsThe Build Lifecycle Plugins Project website generation Advanced site generation Reporting PropertiesBuild Profiles The Maven Repository Team Collaboration Writing Plugins IDEs such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, ands NetBeansUsing and creating assemblies Developing with Maven Archetypes

Several sources for Maven have appeared online for some time, but nothing served as an introductionand comprehensive reference guide to this tool -- until now. Maven: The Definitive Guide is the ideal book to help you manage development projects for software, web applications, and enterpriseapplications. And it comes straight from the source.
