About the Author

Brett Porter

Brett Porter is a software developer from Sydney, Australia with a passion for development tooling, and automation. Seeking a more standardized and reproducible solution to organize, build, and deploy a number of software projects across teams, he discovered an early beta of Maven 1.0 in 2003, and has been heavily involved in the development of the project since. He is a member of the Apache Maven Project Management Committee, and has conducted presentations and training on Maven and related tooling at several conferences and events. He founded the Archiva project in 2005. Brett is also a member of the Apache Software Foundation.

Brett is currently VP, Product Development at G2iX, in charge of the Maestro division. He and his team seek to make developers more efficient by offering support and services for development and automation tools including Apache Maven, Apache Continuum, Apache Archiva, and Selenium.

Brett was co-author of the book Better Builds with Maven, the first book to be written about the Maven 2.0 release in 2005, and has been involved in reviewing Maven: A Developer's Notebook and Java Power Tools.

Maria Odea Ching

Maria Ching grew up in a small town called Daet, then moved to Manila when she went to college. She took up Computer Studies at De La Salle University and graduated in 2005. She started using open source tools from her first job after graduating and from then on, got interested in everything open source. When she came to work for Exist, she got assigned in a project doing a lot of development work in open source projects, specifically Maven, Continuum, and Archiva. Back then, Continuum and Archiva (formerly named Maven Repository Manager) were still sub-projects of Maven. Eventually, she became a committer, then a PMC member of Maven. In 2008, Continuum and Archiva became top-level projects at the ASF and Deng was elected as PMC Chair of Archiva. She is still currently serving as PMC Chair of the project and as PMC members of Continuum and Maven.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is poorly titled. It attempts to give a high level overview of CI and build management through Maven. The book is huge and attempts to cover a lot of topics, but fails to go into a useful detail on most of them. Thus, it doesn't serve as a useful reference. I personally found it a difficult read, more akin to a stream of consciousness than a book. I blame the editor and publisher, not the authors. I had the same experience with their SOA book. My new rule after making this purchase is to avoid Packt. Your mileage may vary, but I highly recommend skimming the book before purchase.

Format: Paperback
Read much of this book via Safari Online. It is one of the few places I've found so far to discuss some practical topics I'm interested in:
- How to set up an integration test build.
- How to add environment specific configuration to a build while still producing environment agnostic artifacts (Jars, wars, etc.)
- Build pipelining.

Format: Paperback
This reference is well done. I found it highly useful for gaining and understanding of using Maven and how it fits into the software development lifecycle. It goes beyond a standard reference book.
