I have played with Maven on and off for a while but as documentation is a bit patchy, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the “Maven Book” by Vincent Massol and Tim O’Brien’s (Maven: A Developer’s Notebook, O’Reilly, 2005) since it was announced some time ago. It’s been on pre-order at Amazon.co.uk for months but it finally arrived yesterday. I worked through chapter 1 in about two hours. Chapter 3 looks particularly interesting. The books comes with some interesting extras such as
The Maven Book Wiki www.mavenbook.org
Subversion repository for the code www.mavenbook.org/svn/mdn/code
p>If you’re intrigued, there’s a copy of Chapter 1: Maven Jump Start online. My only concern is how much of the book will still be valid when Maven 2 finally gets out of beta.
