First a big thanks to Packt Publishing for having sent me this book to review! I did enjoy going through this book, while I did not learn a lot of new stuff (I am using Apache Maven daily since 2006!), I found it to be concise and would recommend it anytime to any of my colleagues. But let’s go through my review of this cookbook of over 50 recipes towards optimal Java Software Engineering with Maven 3:
Apache Maven 3 Cookbook is a clear, precise, well-written book that gives readers clear recipes for the release process using Apache Maven 3. The authors give a step-by-step account of expectations and hurdles for software development.
The first few chapters quickly bring you to the point to be comfortable using Maven on straightforward projects, and the later chapters provide even more recipes examples on subjects like running a Repository Manager, Writing Plugins, and details on various techniques. The book also covers numerous real world software delivery issues such as multi-module projects, web/enterprise projects, dependency management, automatic testing and documentation.
To sum up key points from this 224 pages book in a few bullets:
The author Srirangan go into detail in describing each of these themes.
if you want to be able to deliver your software to any target environment, using continuous delivery processes, chances are high that Apache Maven is the right tool for this job, and this book should be part of your technical library, beside also of course the free online book of Sonatype Maven: The Complete Reference
