Project validation

Do not compile, only check project for errors.

$ mvn validate


Compile the project

$ mvn compile

When specifying JDK version at compile time or JVM option, add the following information to pom.xml.

<project>  ...  <build>    <plugins>      <plugin>          <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>          <artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>          <version>3.3</version>          <configuration>              <source>1.8</source>              <target>1.8</target>              <encoding>UTF-8</encoding>              <compilerArgs>                  <arg>-g</arg>                  <arg>-Xlint</arg>              </compilerArgs>          </configuration>      </plugin>    </plugins>  </build></project>

$ mvn test

Run test only for specific classes.

$ mvn test -Dtest=BlogicTest

Run test only for a specific class, specific method.

$ mvn test -Dtest= BlogicTest#blogicTest1

Execute target test classes collectively using wildcards.

$ mvn test -Dtest=Blogic*Test

Package generation

Generate deliverables such as JAR and WAR. 
Execution of package also executes phases of validate, compile, test, package.

$ mvn package

Skipping execution of test code and generating JAR.

$ mvn package -DskipTests

Compile test code and skip execution of the test.

$ mvn package -Dmaven.test.skip


Install the JAR in the local repository.

$ mvn install

Install the third-party JAR in the local repository.

mvn install:install-file -Dfile=target/foo.jar -DartifactId=foo \-Dversion=1.0 -Dpackaging=jar -DgeneratePom=true

Skip execution of test code.

$ mvn install -DskipTests

Compile test code and skip execution of the test.

$ mvn install -Dmaven.test.skip


Register the package in the remote repository. 
If you run deploy, all previous phases are executed.

$ mvn deploy


Delete the target directory.

$ mvn clean

It is common to execute it before package and install.

$ mvn clean package$ mvn clean install
