It's been over 10 years since Maven 3 saw the light, bringing initial multi-module support. Later releases brought a lot of improvements, bug fixes, and of course coloured output.

But the Maven community hasn't been resting on their laurels. A lot of effort has gone into the future of Maven. You may have heard about Maven 4, Maven Wrapper, or Maven Daemon. Why should you care? And how will it change the way you use Maven? I will show you by using the latest snapshot builds of Maven - time will tell if that's a brave or a stupid idea…

Join me to find out what the future of Maven has for you!

Martin Willis Presents on Apache Maven
Maven Wrapper
The Maven Wrapper helps ensure that all developers building a project have the correct version of Maven installed even if it isn\u2019t already. Orbit It is a wrapper that allows project maintainers to avoid instructions in their file, such as the version of Maven needed to build the project. It runs on Windows and is rumored to possibly have a PowerShell variant in the future.
Build Consumer Decoupling
Maven and npm have the same purpose of downloading the whole internet. With Maven, the same pom.xml file is used both locally and when deployed to a repository like Maven Central. This can present challenges when making changes to the XML file, as any changes must be backwards compatible. The build consumer decoupling feature allows the project and the pom XML to be different while still uploading a valid form to a central or company repository. This allows the maven community to change the schema without breaking the ecosystem.
Improvements in the Maven Reactor
Maven 4 can do this while Maven 3 cannot. The relative path element can be removed and Maven 4 will still build the project. Maven 4 introduced the idea of multi-module builds, allowing users to decouple the build poem from the consumer poem. It also resolved inter-project dependencies, so that users do not need to manually enter the version number. There were some remaining issues with the reactor, which Maven 4 addressed.
Maven Demon
Mavenot has a new feature called the Maven Demon which allows for faster builds by keeping the JVM and plugins loaded in memory. It also runs builds in a multi-threaded way, but without cluttering the output. This feature was inspired by Gradle Demon and can be tested on the Maven codebase itself. It will speed up builds by running them sequentially and testing them, instead of having to load a new JVM each time.
This talk from Martin Willis gave a comprehensive overview of Apache Maven and its new features, such as the Maven wrapper, build consumer decoupling, improvements in the Maven reactor, and the Maven demon. By utilizing these new features, users can make their builds more efficient and save time. It also encourages people to help test new features and report any bugs they find.
