Create a maven project in Eclipse

This lesson demonstrates steps to integrate JUnit 5 with Maven.

What is Maven?

As per Wikipedia - Maven is a build automation tool used primarily for Java projects. Maven addresses two aspects of building software:

  1. It describes how software is built.

  2. It describes its dependencies.

It uses an XML file, also called as pom.xml. This XML file describes the software project being built, its dependencies on other external modules and components, the build order, directories, and required plug-ins.
