Hi Nayana,

> Is it necessary to learn XML in order to lear Maven?

No, if you use Eclipse you can configure your POM in its graphical editor.
Other IDEs may have similar things.

Even if you edit POMs by hand, XML is "human readable" meaning you don't
really need an in-depth understanding of XML in order to hack together a
Maven POM.

My definition of "learn XML" would be more like:
* Understand basics: elements vs. attributes, etc.
* Understand XML validation; e.g. XSD and DTD
* Understand XSLT stylesheets
* Understand parsing: SAX, DOM and XPath

And you certainly do not need to know those things to configure a Maven POM.

Regards,
Curtis
