    O'Reilly does a great job of over coming the B&D issue

    If you have not figured it out yet, B&D locks down the eBook so that you cannot choose the number of columns, this makes reading SW book very difficult. O'Reilly offers a $4.99 upgrade for all the different eBook formats; including, DRM-free which does not suffer the constrains of a B&D version of the book.

    Are you looking for a build tool? If you do, then this book is for you! The Sonatype Company has done an outstanding job of writing a book about Maven that is designed to help you build and distribute your project.<BR/><BR/>Sonatype, begins by describing Maven, and explains how it stacks up to and improves on other build tools throughout time; and, shows you how to install and run it on all platforms. Next, the author discusses preserving the narrative progression of a Developer's Notebook, that helps people learn Maven by example. Finally, Sonatype provides you with a large amount of comprehensive reference material.<BR/><BR/><BR/>After reading this most excellent book, you should have a better idea of what Maven is, what makes it different from some of the other options out there, and how to install it and learn more from the built-in help facilities. More importantly, this book will show you how to build and distribute your project.
