Subject Re: First Steps with Maven
Date Fri, 28 Jun 2013 15:42:54 GMT
I tried to learn Maven from and ended up 
in a world full of pain and suffering for many months.

If you are really serious about maven I recommend actual training. I 
took 3 days of Sonatype training about 8 months after I started using 
Maven. I deeply regret I did not take the training first.

3 days is a lot of investment. More recently I have been reviewing 
Russel Gold's videos, and these are by far the best introduction to 
Maven I have ever seen. If you are really serious about Maven I would 

 1. Watching Russel's videos. I am not sure what other training he has
    lined up.
 2. Read the Sonatype documentation
 3. Then try reading
 4. If you are getting really serious, take the Sonatype training
    courses, or other courses. If you are a Software Architect dealing
    with Maven, these courses should be mandatory.

Maven is serious power tools, almost indistinguishable from magic. 
Before attempting to understand Maven, get some serious help.

Cheers, Eric
