Here you can see the configured goals.
Maven install, Maven clean etc

maven install goal will install all the necessary dependancies inside pom.xml and create the packaging file which is jar or war file.

In this project we haven't done anything.

In the next post I will show you haow to create a simple spring-hibernate project.

After we creating the project inside eclipse we can run the application even through command line, if you have installed Apache Maven in to you PC.

For that you have to open commandline and go to the project directory thorugh command line and execute the mvn commands such as mvn clean, mvn install, etc.

ex: %testapp> mvn install
