Overview

Maven is a new project management and comprehension tool which provides an elegant way to share build logic across projects. In terms of capabilities, Maven is an improvement to Apache Ant-thanks to numerous plug-ins and built-in integration with unit testing frameworks such as JUnit. Tired of writing the same build logic for every project? Using Maven, you can leverage the experience of the community to avoid the tedious process of creating yet another build script for each new project.


Maven: A Developer's Notebook begins by introducing you to the concept of project object model (POM), and then offers further details on the essential features of Maven. Like all titles in O'Reilly's Developer's Notebook series, this no-nonsense book skips the boring prose and cuts right to the chase. It's an approach that forces you to get your hands dirty by working through a series of poignant labs-exercises that speak to you instead of at you.


Plus, Maven: A Developer's Notebook is the first book on the subject to hit the market, so you know the information is fresh and timely. If you're a Java programmer, you'll be armed with all the critical information you need to get up to speed on this powerful new build tool. You'll discover how Maven can help you:

  • manage a project's build, reporting, and documentation, all from a central piece of information
  • break a complex project into a series of smaller subprojects
  • report on code quality, unit tests, code duplication, and project activity
  • create a custom remote repository
  • build simple and complex plug-ins

In the end, you'll find yourself spending less time working on your project's build system and more time working on your project's code.

    Old book - Much more dated than the publication date would suggest

    This is more a review of the way Barnes & Noble gives the publication dates of NOOK books than of the book itself. The book is for the first version of Maven. The NOOK book has a publication date of 2009, while the publication date on the print book with the same text is _several_ years older. Maven changed enough since then that the book was useless to me, although the Developer's Notebook series has been consistently well designed and this book was probably worth its weight in gold in its day. While I am unlikely to get burned by this again, it would be a major improvement of the NOOK program if the data shown for the NOOK book also indicated the print publication date of the same edition of the text. In the fast-changing world of tech books, publication dates may be the only _external_ indication of what version is being addressed. Likewise, if a reader is following an author of fiction, knowing the original publication date of a book makes it less likely that the reader will be fooled by a new printing of an old series with a fresh covers and purchase something they've already read.
