Maven Command Line Cheatsheet

A quick reference to Maven commands.

mvn -Dtest=<unqualified-classname> test

mvn help:effective-pom

Shows the logical contents of a pom.xml, including contents inherited from the parent pom.xml, up to and including the Maven super POM.

mvn dependency:tree

Shows all dependencies (including transitive dependencies) of your project. This is very helpful for debugging dependency version issues.

mvn -X <package-name>

Shows all explicit and transitive dependencies for a package, helping to identify conflicts

mvn dependency:sources

Downloads all project sources separate from IDE project creation.  Execute from root of parent project, then have your IDE synch up sources.

mvn -Dupgrade.version=<version you're upgrading to> com.jivesoftware.maven:maven-upgrade-plugin:upgrade

Note: requires SVN access; a version is in development to use Maven dependencies instead.

mvn deploy:deploy-file -DgroupId=<package> -DartifactId=<artifact-name> -Dversion=<version-no> -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file.jar -Durl= -DrepositoryId=secure.jive.snapshots

In this example, the command deploys a jar artifact to our repository.  This command working depends on your having adequate permissions.
