Hi friends,
I have a requirement to execute different goals for different project in a multi project build system. Ho can i do it? The below is what it looks like

Now i need to execute mvn packagefor project1, mvn install for project2, mvn compile for project3 and mvn deploy for project4. Also preferably, it should be externalizable.

How do i achieve this in maven? Please let me know.

Thanks and Regards, Pradeep Kumar

I think you are trying to use the wrong tool for your build automation. I recommend that you use a CI tool such as Jenkins instead and have it invoke the builds for the separate modules. Then in Jenkins you can control which target to apply to which module.
