The settings.xml file is the Apache Maven configuration file, which defines how Apache Maven will execute to handle dependencies when we use these dependencies in Maven projects. Instead of defining the configuration information in the pom.xml file for each Maven project, we can use the… Read More
To compile the source code in Maven, we will usually use the Maven Compiler Plugin. It allows us to configure the version of Java that we want to compile the source code. For example, you write code using the syntax of Java 7 and you… Read More
