Advanced Maven Training Course | Automate Java Projects using the IDE independent Apache Maven

Advanced Maven Course Description

Apache Maven is an advanced build tool to support the developer at the whole process of a software project. Typical tasks of a build tool are the compilation of source code, running the tests and packaging the result into JAR_ files. In additional to these typical build capabilities, Maven can also perform related activities, e.g., create websites, upload build results or generate reports.

The Advanced Maven training course builds on the Working with Maven course and focuses on advanced Maven features and concepts.

Getting the Most out of Apache Maven begins with a quick review of Apache Maven. During the review, the course quickly touches key technological and architectural concepts (POM, project configuration, task execution, etc.), and then explores the current state of Maven and the changes that have taken place in Maven 3. Once the foundation has been laid, the course takes an in-depth dive into repository management, versioning, release management, and continuous integration.
The course concludes with an open-ended discussion on best-practices when using Maven on very large projects.

    This is great

    I really love the course editor in LearnPress. It is never easier when creating courses, lessons, quizzes with this one. It's the most useful LMS WordPress plugin I have ever used. Thank a lot! Testing quiz is funny, I like the sorting choice question type most.
