      • Maven , a Yiddish word meaning accumulator of knowledge.
      • Maven is a tool that provides an uniform and easy build process for your projects
        • you describe your project in one xml file and Maven reads this information to compile and package your project.
      • Maven essentially is Project Management and comprehension tool allows you to do,
        • Continuous Integration
        • Builds
        • Testing
        • Dependencies
        • Documentation
        • Distribution
        • Reporting etc..
      • It comes with default templates that are Widely adopted as the best practices
      • Convention over configuration
      • Get everything on-demand from their repositories
        • All the plugins required for your build are taken from a common repository and put into your local repository
      • The basic concept of Maven is a project
      • A ny directory that has a project.xml in it is a project.
      • Another concept in Maven is that of a repository
      • The repository holds the artifacts (a jar, swf, swc, war, pom etc) on which your project depends. There are two kinds of repository: local and remote
      • The local repository is created in a special directory called &quot;.maven/repository&quot; . In Windows, this directory is created in C:Documents And Settings<username>.m2
      • Instead of each project having its own copies of third party libraries, the repository helps developers across projects to share the libraries.
      • Each project can also in turn generate its artifacts and publish it into the remote repository. The process of publishing a jar into the repository is called &quot;install&quot; in Maven lingo.
    •  
      • The project.xml is divided into four main parts namely
        • Project Management Section.
        • Project Dependency Section.
        • Project Build Section
        • Project Reports Section.
    •  
      • Has general information on the organization, its web site, project web site, location of SCM, deployment and issue tracking site, developer list, mailing lists to name a few.
      • Describes the location of source, test and resource files
      • The target audience of the reports can vary from other developers in the same project to sponsors, stakeholders or users from other projects
      • Key to every project
      • For eg. If you want your Junit Test cases to run you need a junit “jar” file. For this you need to specify a <dependency> tag, that describes your artifact.
      • Let build a flex project which uses
        • Cairngorm
        • BlazeDS
        • Locale for Internationalization
      • Install Cairngorm SWC into our local repository (Optional). If it (Maven repository) does not find it in their remote repository
      • mvn install:install-file –Dfile=Cairngorm.swc –Dpackaging=swc –Dversion=2.2.1 –DgroupId=com.adobe.cairngorm -DartifactId=cairngorm
      • mvn archetype:create -DarchetypeGroupId=org.apache.maven.archetypes -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-quickstart -DgroupId=com.companyname.module -DartifactId=modulename-DpackageName=com.companyname.module -Dversion=1.0
      • mvn archetype:create -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-flex -DarchetypeVersion=1.0 -DarchetypeGroupId=dk.jacobve.maven.archetypes -DgroupId=com.companyname.module -DartifactId=moduleFlex -DpackageName=com.companyname.module –Dversion=1.0
      • This would generate the war and the contents would be copied from the flex application
      • mvn archetype:create -DarchetypeGroupId=org.apache.maven.archetypes -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-webapp -DgroupId=com.companyname.module -DartifactId=moduleWeb -DpackageName=com.companyname.module -Dversion=1.0
      • Copy the following
