re: Why I like Maven VIEW POST


The article started strong on why you like Maven. However towards the end you mention that you will most probably end up having to move to Gradle instead. I cannot find the reasons why you would do that in the article.
If maven is: mature, reliable, widely adopted, requires right configuration and no scripting and on top of that it is a technology you like, why would you have to move to Gradle instead?


The reason is simply because a lot of projects are using it, including in the company I work for. No other reason than that really.


Great to hear! It could be a good idea to highlight this reason in the article as well. I'm rather new with maven, currently looking for best way to learn the basics on it. That's how I ran into your article.

Do you have any recommendations on tutorials/good articles to start with to gain some hands on experience? (This might also be a good topic for a new post on
