maven 2 …

Maven has really come a long way since maven 1.0 I am using maven on my project and I am pleasantly surprised by the number of options and plugins that are available. Other than the Maven2 plugin for eclipse not setting up the project dependencies correctly, I have had no issues. The ability to download dependencies of dependencies is really nice.

Some maven2 research projects:

  1. Tell maven that it should use the latest and greatest of a given file, no matter what the dependent pom.xml lists. Having one library say it needs log4j-1.2.9 and another specify log4j-1.2.13 is really annoying.
  2. Get Maven to download the source files
  3. Set up a maven proxy as discussed here.
  4. Set up my project to automatically upload sources to external server as a backup measure.
