Maven is a powerful yet complex tool. When I started learning Maven, the first obstacle was, of course, its complexity. The second, was the lack of documentation that can get me off the ground quickly. This tutorial is an attempt to create a pragmatic guide that aims to get you familiar with Maven in the quickest way possible. The main theme is to get you on some hands on experience to start out and lead you through the creation of a simple Java EE project as quickly as possible. Instead of trying to give you a good read, I try to get you on the journey right away. The topics are roughly ordered by the logical sequence but you can jump around in any way...

Step 1: Repackage a web app as EAR A Java EE application is a multimodule Maven project. At the very least you'll need to package a WAR and an EAR. To get started, I'll simply re-package the simple webapp as an EAR. Create a directory named javaee-app Copy the webapp from here to javaee-app . Rename struts1app to webapp . Create pom.xml under javaee-app :
<project> <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>...Create a directory named ear under javaee-app . Create pom.xml under ear :
<project> <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>...Modify pom.xml in the webapp directory so that it looks like this:
<project> <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion> ...Build with " mvn package " in the javaee-app directory. You can see that ear-1.0.ear is successfully generated in javaee-app/ear/target . Maven successfully resolves dependencies between the sub-projects....

It's easiest to use the archetype plugin to start a new Maven project. I'll use struts 1 as example since it's not in the built-in archetypes for archetype:generate . Generate a simple webapp with archetype:generate :
C:\work\maven>mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeAr...It generates a directory structure like this:
struts1app struts1app/pom.xml struts1app/src...with a simple POM:
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"...Create settings.xml in $HOME/.m2 , add Java.net repository for Java EE dependencies:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <setting...Add Java EE and Struts dependencies in pom.xml . Note that the Java EE dependency has scope provided , meaning that the web app container provides the jars, therefore we don't need to bundle them with our war fie.
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"...Create a directory named java under main , create the Struts form and...
