By default you can call 'maven'
It will call the default goal defined in the maven.xml file (if exist)

For example in the turbine's root, the goal "turbine:build" is called

It is not the same thing if you want to build your project using TDK or run it.
Maven can help you to build it but you need to configure it (see the maven doc)

By default, all the generated data are stored in the subdirectory
"target" in your project.

You need for example use the plugin webserver for example.
http://maven.apache.org/reference/plugins/webserver/

I didn't use it, thus I don't know how it works.
