Apache Maven survival guide “Bring it on! -Mode” #no-external-tools #only-standard-plugins

In many projects, Apache Maven is used and does some stuff - who knows what? In this session, we will pack the best practices from over 10 years of projects into a pom.xml. And you will know what it does and why it's there. Using practical examples, we will look at how to:

  • solve problems in the build
  • make the build reproducible
  • find security issues in the code
  • find security issues in the build
  • make the legal department happy
  • make the build faster
  • reduce the cost of the build
  • emit less CO2

We can do all of this without commercial or additional products - only with Maven standard plugins.
