ABSTRACT: Next Generation Maven Development Stack
This talk focuses on the Maven Ecosystem and the under-pinnings of technologies that are going to shape the Next Generation Maven Development Stack. While the Maven 3 release retains backward-compatibility with plugins written for Maven 2, the foundational technologies used in Maven are being recast to allow for more space for expansion as Maven starts to expand into newer spaces like OSGi and Polyglot development. In this talk, Jason discusses new, emerging technologies and how they fit into the overall approach to the development of a Next-Generation Maven Development Stack.
