About This Course

Who this course is for:

  • Developers who want to learn the Maven build tool to be able to develop Java applications simply and effectively
  • Anyone who wants to understand the basics of how to use Maven at an introductory to intermediate level
  • Beginning to intermediate java developers who want to master how Maven works by understanding what it does

What you’ll learn: 

  • An excellent understanding of how Maven works under the hood
  • The ability to create and build your own Java projects with Maven
  • Understand where to find dependencies (libraries) to use in your projects and how to include them (unlocking and tapping into the huge Java ecosystem of open source libraries and components)
  • Understand how Maven describes projects with the Project Object Model
  • Appreciate how Maven resolves dependencies
  • Be familiar with the build lifecycle and its phases
  • Understand simple customization of a build to execute plugins and more


  • Be familiar with creating simple applications using Java and have an awareness of basic concepts like compilation of Java code, running of a Java class, etc
  • An interest and desire to know how Maven works from the ground up
  • A basic ability to use an IDE for simple Java development is nice, but not required
  • Be able to use the command line to run simple commands

In this course, we look at the Maven build tool which is the number one industry standard currently for creating Java applications. By concentrating on practical hands-on demonstrations, you’ll see first hand how Maven works and from there develop the confidence to be able to use it independently to build your Java projects at home, college or in the workplace.

Whereas many courses will be presentation-style, this course is unique in that it demonstrates concepts “at the command line” with videos that explain what Maven is doing and how it is doing it.  In this way, you’ll develop an understanding of the nuts and bolts of the tool and be in a position to develop effectively with it afterwards. This approach also means you’re more likely to be able to more effectively troubleshoot any problems you may encounter by applying this knowledge from first principles.

Although a beginners course, it has some useful content for those already familiar with Maven.  But to get maximum value from the course, you should really be a beginner with the tool.  Maybe you’ve started a new job where they use it to build their applications, or you’re learning industry-standard tools to better place you ahead of the competition.

Ultimately, by unlocking the mechanics of how Maven works in front of your eyes, you should be able to better build Java projects with the tool and have fun doing so.
