Thanks to my friend, Gandos, he got me interested to use Maven after I read his blog post (It’s in Indonesian). After consulting to another friend, I think it’s a good idea to use Maven for the LabGence project.
The idea is also influenced from this question that I have, “What is the best practice to upload an open-source project?” and “What files that I should and probably shouldn’t upload?”.
I believe Maven can standardize the issue of libraries needed by the project, and also the build script needed. So I decided to give it a try.
Fortunately I found the best and brief introduction tutorial to Maven on JavaBrains.org, you might want to check it out.
I also created the following step by step notes for Mac OSX (which might be applicable also to Linux and other Unix OS). Continue reading “Starting a Java Project with Maven – Step by step Guide for Mac”
