Book Description

In Detail

Managing dependencies in a multi-module project is difficult. In a multi-module project, libraries need to share transitive relations with each other. Maven eliminates this need by reading the project files of dependencies to figure out their inter-relations and other related information. Gaining an understanding of project dependencies will allow you to fully utilize Maven and use it to your advantage.

Aiming to give you a clear understanding of Maven’s functionality, this book focuses on specific case studies that shed light on highly useful Maven features which are often disregarded. The content of this book will help you to replace homebrew processes with more automated solutions.

This practical guide focuses on the variety of problems and issues which occur during the conception and development phase, with the aim of making dependency management as effortless and painless as possible. Throughout the course of this book, you will learn how to migrate from non-Maven projects to Maven, learn Maven best practices, and how to simplify the management of multiple projects. The book emphasizes the importance of projects as well as identifying and fixing potential conflicts before they become issues. The later sections of the book introduce you to the methods that you can use to increase your team’s productivity. This book is the perfect guide to help make you into a proud software craftsman.


An easy-to-follow, tutorial-based guide with chapters progressing from basic to advanced dependency management.

Who this book is for

This book is also particularly useful if you are a developer or an architect. You should be well versed with Maven and its basic functionalities if you wish to get the most out of this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor English distracts from the technical content. 8 July 2014
By Timothy L Skoch - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good info, but the English is very poorly written - as if it were written by someone who recently learned English as a second language. This was distracting enough that I eventually had to switch to a different book.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good content, poor grammar. Still worth the read. 12 Jan. 2015
By C. Berkebile - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is good content, but as another reviewer mentioned, the English grammar I could see being an obstacle for some people. It is still worth reading, in my opinion, if you want to go into some depth and really learn Maven rather than fumble around with it based off of online posts until you get things to work. Just be aware that you'll have to be patient with the poor English in some sections of the book.

Also, on the Kindle, know that the code formatting gets pretty screwed up and can make the XML hard to read. This doesn't bother me as much as some people (maybe simply because I'm stubborn about doing what it takes to learn something).

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful on the go 20 Jan. 2014
By Bob - Published on
Very useful book ; everything is explained clearly. The writing style makes it really easy to understand. I'm not at the end of it yet but so far it was of great help.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and hands-on examples 26 Jun. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Short introduction to Maven with some advanced topics. I liked the figures illustrating dependencies and the Maven code examples.

For people with knowledge of basic Maven concepts such as scopes, dependency resolution and exclusion, and sub-modules, this book will not give much more.
