A good practice is to specify them in the <tt>&lt;build&gt;&lt;pluginManagement/&gt;&lt;/build&gt;</tt> elements for <b>each</b> build plugins (generally, you will define a &lt;pluginManagement/&gt; element in a parent POM). For reporting plugins, you should specify each version in the <tt>&lt;reporting&gt;&lt;plugins/&gt;&lt;/reporting&gt;</tt> elements (and surely in the <tt>&lt;build&gt;&lt;pluginManagement/&gt;&lt;/b
 uild&gt;</tt> elements too).</p></div><div class="section"><h3><a name="Generic_Configuration">Generic Configuration</a></h3><p>Maven plugins (build and reporting) are configured by specifying a <tt>&lt;configuration/&gt;</tt> element where the child elements of the <tt>&lt;configuration/&gt;</tt> element are mapped to fields, or setters, inside your Mojo (remember that a plug-in consists of one or more Mojos where a Mojo maps to a goal). Say, for example, we had a Mojo that performed a query against a particular URL, with a specified timeout and list of options. The Mojo might look like the following:</p><div class="source"><pre>/**
+ * @goal query
+ */
+public class MyQueryMojo
+    extends AbstractMojo
+{
+    /**
+     * @parameter expression=&quot;${query.url}&quot;
+     */
+    private String url;
+
+    /**
+     * @parameter default-value=&quot;60&quot;
+     */
+    private int timeout;
+
+    /**
+     * @parameter
+     */
+    private String[] options;
+
+    public void execute()
+        throws MojoExecutionException
+    {
+        ...
+    }
+}</pre></div><p>To configure the Mojo from your POM with the desired URL, timeout and options you might have something like the following:</p><div class="source"><pre>&lt;project&gt;
+  ...
+  &lt;build&gt;
+    &lt;plugins&gt;
+      &lt;plugin&gt;
+        &lt;artifactId&gt;maven-myquery-plugin&lt;/artifactId&gt;
+        &lt;version&gt;1.0&lt;/version&gt;
+        &lt;configuration&gt;
+          &lt;url&gt;http://www.foobar.com/query&lt;/url&gt;

+            &lt;option&gt;three&lt;/option&gt;
+          &lt;/options&gt;
+        &lt;/configuration&gt;
+      &lt;/plugin&gt;
+    &lt;/plugins&gt;
+  &lt;/build&gt;
+  ...
+&lt;/project&gt;</pre></div><p>As you can see the elements in the configuration match the names of the fields in the Mojo. The configuration mechanism Maven employs is very similar to the way <a class="externalLink" href="http://xstream.codehaus.org">XStream</a> works where elements in XML are mapped to objects. So from the example above you can see that the mapping is pretty straight forward the <tt>url</tt> element maps to the <tt>url</tt> field, the <tt>timeout</tt> element maps to the <tt>timeout</tt> field and the <tt>options</tt> element maps to the <tt>options</tt> field. The mapping mechanism can deal with arrays by inspecting the type of the field and determining if a suitable mapping is possible.</p><p>For mojos that are intended to be executed directly from the CLI, their parameters usually provide a means to be configured via system properties instead of a <tt>&lt;configuration/&gt;</tt> section in the POM. The plugin documentation for those parameters will list 
 an <i>expression</i> that denotes the system properties for the configuration. In the mojo above, the parameter <tt>url</tt> is associated with the expression <tt>${query.url}</tt>, meaning its value can be specified by the system property <tt>query.url</tt> as shown below:</p><div class="source"><pre>mvn myquery:query -Dquery.url=http://maven.apache.org</pre></div><p>Note that the name of the system property does not necessarily match the name of the mojo parameter. While this is a rather common practice, you will often notice plugins that employ some prefix for the system properties to avoid name clashes with other system properties. Though rarely, there are also plugin parameters that (e.g. for historical reasons) employ system properties which are completely unrelated to the parameter name. So be sure to have a close look at the plugin documentation.</p><div class="section"><h4><a name="Help_Goal">Help Goal</a></h4><p>Recent Maven plugins have generally an <tt>help</tt> 
 goal to have in the command line the description of the plugin, with their parameters and types. For instance, to understand the javadoc goal, you need to call:</p><div class="source"><pre>mvn javadoc:help -Ddetail -Dgoal=javadoc</pre></div><p>And you will see all parameters for the javadoc:javadoc goal, similar to this <a class="externalLink" href="http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-javadoc-plugin/javadoc-mojo.html">page</a>.</p></div><div class="section"><h4><a name="Configuring_Parameters">Configuring Parameters</a></h4><div class="section"><h5><a name="Mapping_Simple_Objects">Mapping Simple Objects</a></h5><p>Mapping simple types, like Boolean or Integer, is very simple. The <tt>&lt;configuration/&gt;</tt> element might look like the following:</p><div class="source"><pre>...
+&lt;configuration&gt;
+  &lt;myString&gt;a string&lt;/myString&gt;
+  &lt;myBoolean&gt;true&lt;/myBoolean&gt;
+  &lt;myInteger&gt;10&lt;/myInteger&gt;
+  &lt;myDouble&gt;1.0&lt;/myDouble&gt;
+  &lt;myFile&gt;c:\temp&lt;/myFile&gt;
+  &lt;myURL&gt;http://maven.apache.org&lt;/myURL&gt;
+&lt;/configuration&gt;
+...</pre></div></div><div class="section"><h5><a name="Mapping_Complex_Objects">Mapping Complex Objects</a></h5><p>Mapping complex types is also fairly straight forward in Maven so let's look at a simple example where we are trying to map a configuration for Person object. The <tt>&lt;configuration/&gt;</tt> element might look like the following:</p><div class="source"><pre>...
+&lt;configuration&gt;
+  &lt;person&gt;
+    &lt;firstName&gt;Jason&lt;/firstName&gt;
+    &lt;lastName&gt;van Zyl&lt;/lastName&gt;
+  &lt;/person&gt;
+&lt;/configuration&gt;
+...</pre></div><p>The rules for mapping complex objects are as follows:</p><ul><li>There must be a private field that corresponds to name of the element being mapped. So in our case the <tt>person</tt> element must map to a <tt>person</tt> field in the mojo.</li><li>The object instantiated must be in the same package as the Mojo itself. So if your mojo is in <tt>com.mycompany.mojo.query</tt> then the mapping mechanism will look in that package for an object named <tt>Person</tt>. As you can see the mechanism will capitalize the first letter of the element name and use that to search for the object to instantiate.</li><li>If you wish to have the object to be instantiated live in a different package or have a more complicated name then you must specify this using an <tt>implementation</tt> attribute like the following:</li></ul><div class="source"><pre>...
+&lt;configuration&gt;
+  &lt;person implementation=&quot;com.mycompany.mojo.query.SuperPerson&quot;&gt;
+    &lt;firstName&gt;Jason&lt;/firstName&gt;
+    &lt;lastName&gt;van Zyl&lt;/lastName&gt;
+  &lt;/person&gt;
+&lt;/configuration&gt;
+...</pre></div></div><div class="section"><h5><a name="Mapping_Collections">Mapping Collections</a></h5><p>The configuration mapping mechanism can easily deal with most collections so let's go through a few examples to show you how it's done:</p><div class="section"><h6><a name="Mapping_Lists">Mapping Lists</a></h6><p>Mapping lists works in much the same way as mapping to arrays where you a list of elements will be mapped to the List. So if you have a mojo like the following:</p><div class="source"><pre>public class MyAnimalMojo
+    extends AbstractMojo
+{
+    /**
+     * @parameter
+     */
+    private List animals;
+
+    public void execute()
+        throws MojoExecutionException
+    {
+        ...
+    }
+}</pre></div><p>Where you have a field named <tt>animals</tt> then your configuration for the plug-in would look like the following:</p><div class="source"><pre>&lt;project&gt;
+  ...
+  &lt;build&gt;
+    &lt;plugins&gt;
+      &lt;plugin&gt;
+        &lt;artifactId&gt;maven-myanimal-plugin&lt;/artifactId&gt;
+        &lt;version&gt;1.0&lt;/version&gt;
+        &lt;configuration&gt;
+          &lt;animals&gt;
+            &lt;animal&gt;cat&lt;/animal&gt;
+            &lt;animal&gt;dog&lt;/animal&gt;
+            &lt;animal&gt;aardvark&lt;/animal&gt;
+          &lt;/animals&gt;
+        &lt;/configuration&gt;
+      &lt;/plugin&gt;
+    &lt;/plugins&gt;
+  &lt;/build&gt;
+  ...
+&lt;/project&gt;</pre></div><p>Where each of the animals listed would be entries in the <tt>animals</tt> field. Unlike arrays, collections have no specific component type. In order to derive the type of a list item, the following strategy is used:</p><ol style="list-style-type: decimal"><li>If the XML element contains an <tt>implementation</tt> hint attribute, that is used</li><li>If the XML tag contains a <tt>.</tt>, try that as a fully qualified class name</li><li>Try the XML tag (with capitalized first letter) as a class in the same package as the mojo/object being configured</li><li>If the element has no children, assume its type is <tt>String</tt>. Otherwise, the configuration will fail.</li></ol></div><div class="section"><h6><a name="Mapping_Maps">Mapping Maps</a></h6><p>In the same way, you could define maps like the following:</p><div class="source"><pre>...

Unfortunately most of these artifacts fall under Sun's Binary License which disallows us from distributing them from Ibiblio.</p><p>Another problem is that Sun's appears not to have any sort of convention for naming their own JARs so we have taken steps in suggesting some common names for Sun's artifacts.

It is important that you follow the suggested naming conventions as we cannot store the JARs at the central repository. We can only store metadata about those JARs and it is the metadata that contains location and retrieval information.</p><p>Once you have downloaded a particular Sun JAR to your system you can install the JAR in your local repository. Please refer to our <a href="./guide-3rd-party-jars-local.htm
 l">Guide to installing 3rd party JARs</a> for instructions on how to accomplish this.</p><p><b>Note</b>: Java.net provides a <a class="externalLink" href="http://download.java.net/maven/2/">Maven 2 repository</a>.

An archetype is a very simple artifact, that contains the project prototype you wish to create. An archetype is made up of:</p><ul><li>an <a class="externalLink" href="http://maven.apache.org/archetype/archetype-common/archetype.html">archetype descriptor</a> (<tt>archetype.xml</tt> in directory: <tt>src/main/resources/META-INF/maven/</tt>). It lists all the files that will be contained in the archetype and categorizes them so they can be processed correctly by the archetype generation mechanism.</li><li>the prototype files that are copied by the archetype plugin (directory: <tt>src/main/resources/archetype-resources/</tt>)</li><li>the prototype pom (<tt>pom.xml</tt> in: <tt>src/main/resources/archetype-resources</tt>)</li><li>a pom for the archetype (<tt>pom.xml</tt> in the archetype's root directory).</l
 i></ul><p>Note: this mini-guide has been written for <a class="externalLink" href="http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-archetype-plugin-1.0-alpha-7/">archetype plugin version 1.0.x</a>, with its <a class="externalLink" href="http://maven.apache.org/archetype/archetype-common/archetype.html">old archetype descriptor</a> (stored in <tt>archetype.xml</tt> file). <a class="externalLink" href="http://maven.apache.org/archetype/maven-archetype-plugin/">Archetype plugin 2.0.x</a> is a new generation that fully supports archetypes created for 1.0.x, and adds a <a class="externalLink" href="http://maven.apache.org/archetype/archetype-common/archetype-descriptor.html">new archetype descriptor</a> (stored in <tt>archetype-metadata.xml</tt> file): it's more flexible, has more features, but the basis is absolutely the same.</p><p>To create an archetype follow these steps:</p><div class="section"><h3>1. Create a new project and pom.xml for the archetype artifact<a name="a1._Create_a_new
 _project_and_pom.xml_for_the_archetype_artifact"></a></h3><p>An example <tt>pom.xml</tt> for an archetype artifact looks as follows:</p><div class="source"><pre>
+&lt;project xmlns=&quot;http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0&quot; xmlns:xsi=&quot;http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance&quot;
+  xsi:schemaLocation=&quot;http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd&quot;&gt;
+  &lt;modelVersion&gt;4.0.0&lt;/modelVersion&gt;
+
+  &lt;groupId&gt;my.groupId&lt;/groupId&gt;
+  &lt;artifactId&gt;my-archetype-id&lt;/artifactId&gt;
+  &lt;version&gt;1.0-SNAPSHOT&lt;/version&gt;
+  &lt;packaging&gt;jar&lt;/packaging&gt;
+&lt;/project&gt;
+</pre></div><p>All you need to specify is a <tt>groupId</tt>, <tt>artifactId</tt> and <tt>version</tt>. These three parameters will be needed later for invoking the archetype via <tt>archetype:generate</tt> from the commandline.</p></div><div class="section"><h3>2. Create the archetype descriptor<a name="a2._Create_the_archetype_descriptor"></a></h3><p>The <a class="externalLink" href="http://maven.apache.org/archetype/archetype-common/archetype.html">archetype descriptor</a> is a file called <tt>archetype.xml</tt> which must be located in the <tt>src/main/resources/META-INF/maven/</tt> directory. An example of an archetype descriptor can be found in the quickstart archetype:</p><div class="source"><pre>
+&lt;archetype xmlns=&quot;http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-archetype-plugin/archetype/1.0.0&quot; xmlns:xsi=&quot;http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance&quot;
+  xsi:schemaLocation=&quot;http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-archetype-plugin/archetype/1.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/archetype-1.0.0.xsd&quot;&gt;
+  &lt;id&gt;quickstart&lt;/id&gt;
