The Apache Software Foundation Announces Release of Apache Maven 2.0 and Continuum 1.0

Build Orchestration and Management Tools that Simplify Community-oriented, Real-time Engineering (CoRE) Development Processes

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Apache Software Foundation has announced the general availability of Apache Maven 2.0 and Continuum 1.0, the fastest growing build system for Java-based projects.

Maven 2.0 is based on a unified Project Object Model (POM) architecture, which consists of metadata describing clear, consistent phases for building projects. Maven 2.0 offers a unique plug-in environment that provides an extensible development framework to support multiple languages for total re-usability across projects. It also features new software "DNA" mapping to track and manage transitive build dependencies across repositories.

Continuum 1.0 enables continuous integration by both automating the testing and packaging phases of the software build, and providing reports on build status, including success, failure and unit test coverage.

Together, the platform delivers declarative build, dependency management, documentation creation, site publication, and distribution capabilities to enable project visibility and management.

"The release of Maven 2.0 is a major achievement," said Jason van Zyl, the Chair of the Apache Maven Project Management Committee. "With this release, we bring vast technical and usability improvements to Maven's real-time build capabilities and truly raise the bar with respect to enabling community- oriented development."
