Building a project with Maven
If your project uses the Maven build system,
cd into the directory containing the
pom.xml file for the module you wish to build.
For a single-module project, this is typically located at the root of your repository. For a multi-module project, this may be within a sub-directory.
To compile the project, run the
mvn test-compile command. If successful, you should see a
BUILD SUCCESS message towards the end of the output from Maven.
Note that we recommend
mvn test-compile rather than
mvn compile because the former may
produce configuration files which have to be taken into account to verify the tests.
