Apache Maven BOF

Java Language

This will be the third Apache Maven BOF in a row during Devoxx Belgium.

These BOFs have always been the most succesful ones compared to other conferences.

Based on last years discussion we've improved Maven by being able to show where every element in the effective pom is coming from. With the growth of the projects it can be quite hard to understand how Maven calculates the effective pom, hence this improvement should give more control.

Scheduled on Thursday from 20:00 to 21:00 (Europe/Brussels) in BOF 2

In 2011 Robert joined the Apache Maven team (between the releases of Maven 3.0.3 and 3.0.4). Since then he has been one of the most active committers on the project and has been the chairman for the last couple of years. Due to a partial overlap of the goals of Maven and the Java Platform Module System Robert has joined the expert group of JSR-376, better known as project Jigsaw. He has done most of the implementations for the Maven project to support the Java Modular System.
