 Publisher: Rahul Kumar Sharma.

Do you want to build or manage your Java-based projects simply and efficiently? With this course, you’ll gain a good command of the open-source Maven build automation tool to create and customize your projects. Next, you will study the default behavior of Maven and how you can customize it for your specific project needs. Finally, we will guide you one by one in executing and deploying your programs in detail.


Maven is a powerful Java build tool used to build deployable ‘artifacts’ from source code. It follows the convention over configuration principle, letting you manage your project with little to no extra effort. We will show you how to download and install Maven on Mac/Linux and Windows and any other Operating systems by following simple steps. Eclipse is an integrated development environment (IDE) that supports Maven and requires no explicit Maven plugin. Discover how to create a simple project on Maven using Eclipse and Understand the default behavior and setting that exist when you don’t provide any custom configuration. During the development of the application, we often require libraries created by someone else and you will discover the dependency and how Maven provides flexibility to resolve any dependency conflicts should they arise.

    • Maven build lifecycle is a collection of multiple phases that always run in order.
    • A Java application can be deployed onto a server with a simple six-step approach: generating resources, compiling the code, testing, packaging, saving the package, and deploying the package.
    • We have each of these steps divided into sub-steps called plugins.
    • In Maven, a project is configured and managed via a single file known as POM.xml.
    • You can customize the default behavior of Maven by altering POM.xml.
