For too long, developers have worked on disorganized application projects, where every part seemed to have its own build system, and no common repository existed for information about the state of the project. Now there's help. The long-awaited official documentation to Maven is here. Written by Maven creator Jason Van Zyl and his team at Sonatype, Maven: The Definitive Guide clearly explains how this tool can bring order to your software development projects. Maven is largely replacing Ant as the build tool of choice for large open source Java projects because, unlike Ant, Maven is also a project management tool that can run reports, generate a project website, and facilitate communication among members of a working team. To use Maven, everything you need to know is in this guide. The first part demonstrates the tool's capabilities through the development, from ideation to deployment, of several sample applications -- a simple software development project, a simple web application, a multi-module project, and a multi-module enterprise project. The second part offers a complete reference guide that includes: The POM and Project Relationships The Build Lifecycle Plugins Project website generation Advanced site generation Reporting Properties Build Profiles The Maven Repository Team Collaboration Writing Plugins IDEs such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, ands NetBeans Using and creating assemblies Developing with Maven Archetypes Several sources for Maven have appeared online for some time, but nothing served as an introduction and comprehensive reference guide to this tool -- until now. Maven: The Definitive Guide is the ideal book to help you manage development projects for software, web applications, and enterprise applications. And it comes straight from the source.
You've worked on many problems that were a complete mess: every part of the project had its own build system that needed to be reverse-engineered before you could understand it. There wasn't any common repository for information about the state of the product. And everyone seemed to be working by his or her own rules and conventions. Sound familiar? It's time to escape. Maven: The Definitive Guide teaches you how to bring order to your development projects. It enables you to establish uniform build processes, standard systems for reporting on project status, and to bring unruly projects under control. This edition has been updated to include associated technologies such as Issue Trackers, Repository Managers, and Component Lifecycle tools, all of which are an important component of any development infrastructure. The landscape of "builds" has changed over the past several years and this book will guide users toward best practices for larger build systems.
Streamline software development with Jenkins, the popular Java-based open source tool that has revolutionized the way teams think about Continuous Integration (CI).

Ideal for developers, software architects, and project managers, Jenkins: The Definitive Guide is both a CI tutorial and a comprehensive Jenkins reference. Through its wealth of best practices and real-world tips, you'll discover how easy it is to set up a CI service with Jenkins. Learn how to install, configure, and secure your Jenkins server Organize and monitor general-purpose build jobs Integrate automated tests to verify builds, and set up code quality reporting Establish effective team notification strategies and techniques Configure build pipelines, parameterized jobs, matrix builds, and other advanced jobs Manage a farm of Jenkins servers to run distributed builds Implement automated deployment and continuous delivery

The NetBeans Platform is the world's only modular Swing application framework, used by very large organizations in mission-critical scenarios, such as at Boeing and Northrop Grumman, as well as in the financial sector and in the oil/gas industry. For these large customers in enterprises who are increasingly interested in Maven and OSGi, the book will have particular relevance. The Definitive Guide to NetBeansTM Platform 7 is a thorough and authoritative introduction to the open-source NetBeans Platform, covering all its major APIs in detail, with relevant code examples used throughout. Provides a completely updated definitive guide to the NetBeans Platform, using the latest APIs, coding patterns, and methodologies. Focuses strongly on business features in an application, since Oracle's customers are particularly interested in business-related aspects. For example, how to use OSGi, how to add authentication/security, how to monetize from a modular application. The original German book on which this title is based was well received. The NetBeans Platform Community has put together this English translation, which covers the latest NetBeans Platform 7 APIs. With an introduction by known NetBeans Platform experts Jaroslav Tulach and Tim Boudreau, this is the most up-to-date book on this topic at the moment. All NetBeans Platform developers will gain something from this book, because several topics in the book have not been documented anywhere else.
What could you do with data if scalability wasn't a problem? With this hands-on guide, you'll learn how Apache Cassandra handles hundreds of terabytes of data while remaining highly available across multiple data centers -- capabilities that have attracted Facebook, Twitter, and other data-intensive companies. Cassandra: The Definitive Guide provides the technical details and practical examples you need to assess this database management system and put it to work in a production environment. Author Eben Hewitt demonstrates the advantages of Cassandra's nonrelational design, and pays special attention to data modeling. If you're a developer, DBA, application architect, or manager looking to solve a database scaling issue or future-proof your application, this guide shows you how to harness Cassandra's speed and flexibility. Understand the tenets of Cassandra's column-oriented structure Learn how to write, update, and read Cassandra data Discover how to add or remove nodes from the cluster as your application requires Examine a working application that translates from a relational model to Cassandra's data model Use examples for writing clients in Java, Python, and C# Use the JMX interface to monitor a cluster's usage, memory patterns, and more Tune memory settings, data storage, and caching for better performance
