The Maven 2 tutorial : A practical guide for Maven 2 users

Not so long ago on the Maven 2 users mailing list, someone complained Maven 2 had the "worst documentation in the whole Apache projects". Therefore, I am writting this tutorial as an attempt to make Maven 2 documentation one of the best in the whole Apache projects. It will also be a constant evolving knowledge base adressing the most commons questions/issues. The format of this tutorial is inspired from the excellent "The  Java TM Tutorial"© document wich can be found on Sun official web site.

This tutorial is split into several trails of different level wich are adressing specific aspects of Maven 2 use.

  • Getting started: If you aren't the type of guy who like to read a manual and you want to see Maven in action now, this is the place to go.

  • Dealing with IDEs : Ok, Maven 2 seems very cool but I am using an IDE to developp my application. How does Maven 2 fits in the picture?
