How to exclude Junit tests using Gradle or Maven in Java Applications

Introduction Here in this tutorial I will tell you how to exclude Junit test cases from build automation in Java applications.

Managing Dependencies and Plugins in Multi Module Project

Introduction Here I will discuss how to manage dependencies and plugins in multi module project using maven. A multi-module project is built from a parent pom that manages a group of sub-modules. In most of the cases, the parent pom is located in the parent project’s root directory and must have packaging of type pom. So in multi module project you need to put the required dependencies into the parent module’s pom file and child modules will inherit those dependencies from the parent pom.

Maven profile and non-profile based plugin execution

Situation may occur while one of the multi-modules project may have a module with only some configuration files, such as, shell scripts, XMLs, properties or any other files that basically do not produce a meaningful jar file, because this sub-module project does not have any Java source file. So in such case it is better to build as a zip archive and such zip file is used for configuration purpose for…
