Hi All,

Could someone suggest a good book for learning Maven.

I found a pdf from Coderanch Maven FAQ.

Can someone suggest something else ?

Regards,
Ashwin

"Maven: The Definitive Guide" is good. Older, but also good is "Better Builds with Maven" - which is free.

I've read both - they cover from different perspectives.

I recommend starting with ""Better Build with Maven" - it is a little more tutorial like. Once you go through that, then tackle "Maven: The Definitive Guide", it is a good reference.
