Chapter 1. Maven in a Nutshell

In this chapter, we will take a comprehensive look at the fundamentals of Maven, by example. Moreover, we will also look at the associated terminology that we will be using in this book. If you are already a frequent Maven user, you may only need to skim through this chapter to refresh yourself on some of the basic principles.

For those who are new to Maven; other books and the Maven documentation have covered some of this content in more detail already — so this is the only review we will spend on the basics of Maven. Beyond this chapter, we will assume that you are confident in updating the Maven project without step-by-step instructions so that we can quickly get into more interesting examples.
