Abstract

After a short introduction into the build tool Maven 2 we dive into how we use it to build complete OpenCms based projects. A custom made Maven VFS Plugin helps managing all VFS content in a file system source tree just like Java sources.

This allows us to put complete OpenCms based projects under version control, including everything that resides in the VFS. That way team code contributions to all kind of VFS content can be managed using standard version control mechanisms just like with Java source files.

After checking out from version control an OpenCms based project can be built into a completely functional web application using Maven and the Maven VFS plugin.
