Join us as Fred Bloom shares how to manage a project's build, reporting and documentation from a central piece of information using Maven.
Maven is a powerful Project Object Modeling (POM) tool with features like:
  • Simple project setup that follows best practices - get a new project or module started in seconds.
  • Consistent usage across all projects means no ramp up time for new developers coming onto a project.
  • Superior dependency management including automatic updating, dependency closures.
  • A large and growing repository of libraries and metadata to use out of the box, and arrangements in place with the largest Open Source projects for real-time availability of their latest releases.
  • Extensible, with the ability to easily write plugins in Java or scripting languages.
  • Instant access to new features with little or no extra configuration.
  • Ant tasks for dependency management and deployment outside of Maven.
  • Model based builds into predefined output types such as a JAR, WAR, or distribution based on metadata about the project.
  • Coherent site of project information.
  • Release management and distribution publication.
  • Dependency management.
I'm sure there will be a lively discussion and plenty to learn - we hope you join us!
