Maven by Example

3.6. Summary

In this chapter, we have created a simple project, packaged the project into a JAR file, installed that JAR into the Maven repository for use by other projects, and generated a site with documentation. We accomplished this without writing a single line of code or touching a single configuration file. We also took some time to develop definitions for some of the core concepts of Maven. In the next chapter, we’ll start customizing and modifying our project pom.xml file to add dependencies and configure unit tests.
