Apache Maven 1.x has reached its end of life, and is no longer supported. For more information, see the announcement. Users are encouraged to migrate to the current version of Apache Maven.


There are already plugins holding a lot of information we need when writing the project file. Especially the javadoc and the java plugin contain several properties that we should reuse.

Some examples:

  • maven.compile.deprecation
  • maven.javadoc.private
  • maven.javadoc.doctitle
  • maven.javadoc.destdir
At the moment we're using the target directory to direct the compilation and javadoc output produced by JDEE to.
