Apache Maven is an automation tool. The tool is written in Java. It was initially released on 13 July 2004. It is developed by the Apache software foundation. It is part of the Jakarta Project. It is working on two aspects: how software is built, and its dependencies. It was created by Jason van Zyl. It is built by using a plugin-based architecture that allows it to make the use of any application controllable by standard input. It dynamically downloads Java libraries.
