I am a newbie to maven and i am compiling my lots of code through it.
I am migrating my project from ant to maven.We have lots of jar files in lib folder of our project and custom created folder structure.Now i am trying to configuring it with my local libraries with so many ideas like repository tags etc but its not compiling my .java files,it doesn't find its lib jars .
how should i configure my lib folder jars to compile my .java files.
Maven is based on dependencies. You need to define these libraries as dependencies. If the jars are standard jars such as the hibernate jars, you can define standard repository dependencies. For site-local jars, you should set up a Maven repository and install them there.
