The Apache Maven for Java Developers Competency (Intermediate Level) benchmark assesses your knowledge of navigating Maven repositories, configuring remote repositories, overriding directory layout, and setting up Project Object Model (POM) inheritance. You will be evaluated on your knowledge of the Maven build life cycle, executing phases, employing plugins to tailor the build process, configuring plugins and associating them with life cycle phases, creating profiles for environment-specific builds, building a multimodule project, and using a bill of materials (BOM) for streamlined dependency management. Learners scoring high on this benchmark demonstrate the skills necessary to leverage Apache Maven for sophisticated project management and build automation using repositories, profiles, multimodule projects, and BOM projects.
