Pour les articles homonymes, voir Maven. Il est semblable à l'outil Ant, mais fournit des moyens de configuration plus simples, eux aussi basés sur le format XML. Maven est géré par l'organisation Apache Software Foundation. Précédemment Maven était une branche de l'organisation Jakarta Project. Maven utilise un paradigme connu sous le nom de Project Object Model (POM) afin de décrire un projet logiciel, ses dépendances avec des modules externes et l'ordre à suivre pour sa production. Maven1 et Maven2 ont été développés en parallèle mais les versions futures seront basées sur la structure de la deuxième version. Project Object Model (POM)[modifier | modifier le code] Chaque projet ou sous-projet est configuré par un POM qui contient les informations nécessaires à Maven pour traiter le projet (nom du projet, numéro de version, dépendances vers d'autres projets, bibliothèques nécessaires à la compilation, noms des contributeurs, etc.).

Remarques. Maven - Welcome to Apache Maven. Guide to Configuring Maven. Maven configuration occurs at 3 levels: Project - most static configuration occurs in pom.xmlInstallation - this is configuration added once for a Maven installationUser - this is configuration specific to a particular user The separation is quite clear - the project defines information that applies to the project, no matter who is building it, while the others both define settings for the current environment. Note: the installation and user configuration cannot be used to add shared project information - for example, setting <organization> or <distributionManagement> company-wide. For this, you should have your projects inherit from a company-wide parent pom.xml. You can specify your user configuration in ${user.home}/.m2/settings.xml.

Configuring your Local Repository The location of your local repository can be changed in your user configuration. <settings> ... Note: The local repository must be an absolute path.

Why I never use the Maven release plugin - InsaneProgramming. Just about every 6 months or so an article appears cursing Maven, attracting both proponents as opponents to Maven and Ant.

Why I never use the Maven release plugin - InsaneProgramming

While it’s real fun to watch (I really get a laugh when people start to advocate the return to Ant), most of the time it’s always the same arguments. Maven lacks flexibility, the plugin system sucks (when will people learn to use plugin versions…), you can’t use scripting and the all time favorite: the release plugin sucks. Well, I am a Maven addict and I’m happy to say: yes, I agree, the release plugin sucks. Big time. But here’s something you may have forgotten: you don’t need it! The Maven release plugin tries to make releasing software a breeze. Now, if you break down the release plugin into sensible steps, you’ll really save yourself a whole lot of trouble.

Announce the release process Very important. There’s no way in hell Maven can automate this process and if you try, you’ll bump into the many pitfalls the release plugin has to offer. Mvn versions:set -DnewVersion not updating modules? Updating version numbers of modules in a multi-module Maven project. Versions Maven Plugin - Changing the project version.

It will automatically climb up local directories to find the aggregation root. It will automatically update explicitly referenced dependencies. You specify the version to update to via the newVersion property, for example. Maven Versioning Strategy - Kyle Lieber. I’ve been having a lot of discussions with analysts in my organization about how to version software using Maven and I’m finding there is a common misconception about what SNAPSHOT actually means.

Maven Versioning Strategy - Kyle Lieber

I’ve been looking for a good blog to send them that helps explain versioning in Maven but unfortunately everything I’ve found merely discusses version formats and not how to use them as you’re developing an application. So, I decided I would take a stab at it. I welcome any comments and constructive criticism that will help me improve this document, so please feel free.

First off, a SNAPSHOT is not the same thing as an alpha/beta/etc version. It is a special keyword that means it is the latest version of your code. Next thing to understand is what a release is in Maven. Make sense? Versioning Strategy. Maven SCM Jazz Provider – Maven SCM Jazz Provider - Working with the Release Plugin.

Maven – Available Plugins

Looking for a specific goal to execute? This page lists the core plugins and others. There are the build and the reporting plugins: Build plugins will be executed during the build and they should be configured in the <build/> element from the POM.Reporting plugins will be executed during the site generation and they should be configured in the <reporting/> element from the POM. Because the result of a Reporting plugin is part of the generated site, Reporting plugins should be both internationalized and localized. Nar-maven-plugin - NAR Plugin.

This plugin for Maven 2 allows you to compile native code (c++, c and fortran) on a number of different architectures (Linux, Windows, MacOSX, Solaris, ...) and with a number of different compilers/linkers (g++, Microsoft Visual C++, CC, ...) The output produced is wrapped up in Native ARchive files (.nar) some of which are machine independent (-noarch), while others are machine specific and thus depend on a combination of machine architecture(A), operating-system(O) and linker(L) identified as AOL.
