Why I don’t Use Maven for my Java Projects
Honestly, Maven is a mess. But the problem with Maven has nothing to do with XML files. The real problem is that it’s a single tool that tries to do too many things. Every maven build feels like a combination of magic and shoddy engineering. Too many moving parts and when it breaks the errors make absolutely no sense.
