In the process of creating this multimodule project, we’ll explore Maven and discuss the different ways it can be used to create modular projects that encourage reuse.

Downloading This Chapter’s Example

The multimodule project developed in this example consists of modified versions of the projects developed in Chapters 4 and 5, and we are not using the Maven Archetype plugin to generate this multimodule project. We strongly recommend downloading a copy of the example code to use as a supplemental reference while reading the content in this chapter. Without the examples, you won’t be able to recreate this chapter’s example code. This chapter’s example project may be downloaded with the book’s example code at http://www.sonatype.com/book/mvn-examples-1.0.zip or http://www.sonatype.com/book/mvn-examples-1.0.tar.gz. Unzip this archive in any directory, and then go to the ch07/ directory.
