Mastering Maven 2.0
Maven has been on the Java build tools scene for quite a number of years, but the adoption rate in enterprises is now going through the roof. Maven can seem daunting, but this presentation will equip existing Maven users with more efficient techniques and tools to overcome the biggest perceived Maven hurdles and build issues with ease.
We'll examine tools to help you find artifacts in central repositories, manage your corporation's internal Maven artifacts with a proxy tool such as Nexus, view and override dependency graphs, dependency management and multi-module best practices, create OS specific profiles, and leverage the latest Maven plugins for the top Java IDEs.
Topping it off, we will review migration paths from Ant, and why Maven just makes sense with your company's use of the ever growing web of open source libraries. This presentation will take beginning and mid-level Maven users up to a higher level of efficiency and mastery.
Prerequisite: Basic Maven knowledge
