Using Maven to create a super SQL file with the merge-maven-plugin
If you've ever worked on a PL/SQL project or any project with a good amount of database related work you probably have had to deal with multiple SQL files and their deployment across systems. This is exactly what I've come across recently. Even in the early stages of my PL/SQL project I had 11 separate SQL files that would need to be deployed to system and performance test environments, then propagated to production, production support, etc. To help with managing all this I decided that building a single 'super SQL' file would work best and I ended up using Maven to do it.

How to configure the Minify Maven Plugin
If you know anything about JavaScript and haven't been living under a rock, you will know about minification. There are tools like Google's Closure Compiler and Yahoo's YUI Compressor available to make minified versions of your JavaScript and CSS files. Using those tools is easy but what's even easier is having a Maven wrapper around them. This is where the Minify Maven Plugin comes in.

Example JAX-WS WebService built with Oracle WebLogic Maven plugin (wsgen)
In the past I've shown how to use Ant and the JWSC task to build a JAX-WS web service, well I've moved onto Maven now and started to use the Oracle WebLogic Maven plugin to build services. This is an example on how to build a JAX-WS web service using that plugin, specifically the wsgen goal.

Oracle WebLogic Maven plugin fails on the JWSC goal for certain uses of unchecked generics
The Oracle Maven Plugin is great and provides very useful functionality like the ws-jwsc goal that compiles your JWS file into a deployable web service. However, in some situations I noticed that JWSC cannot handle unchecked generics. I did find a way to fix it so read on.

Maven WebLogic Plugin and the Java 5 source code bug plus how to fix it
I've noted previously that the JWSC Ant Task fails to build Java sources above 1.5 source version due to a hardcoded "1.5" value in one of the Jar files. That was happening for the 12.1.2 version of the Ant task, it also appears to be a problem in the 12.1.2 Maven plugin as well as the 12.1.3 Maven plugin.

Packaging a shared library using Maven for deployment to WebLogic
I've written previously about how to use Ant to package a shared library for WebLogic, now that I've started using Maven more it is time to see how to do the same thing by creating a pom.xml file and running mvn package.

Compiling modular/dependent XML schemas using a catalog file and Maven
This is a quick guide to show how to use the maven-jaxb2-plugin to compile a schema that is dependent on another schema/module within the same set of Maven child projects while being able to build this schema separately as another Maven artefact.

Getting around Maven's parent-child project version dependency issue
I'm slowly coming around to liking Maven now. My first experience with it was less than nice, I put that down to not really understanding what it is and how to use it effectively. However one thing that has always bothered me with Maven was it's parent-child project version dependency. You have to specify the version in the parent pom.xml file, then for every child project (module) you have to reference that parent by its version. This is manageable if you only have a handful of child projects but once you get lots, changing your version number each release becomes a substantial task. I know there are plugins to manage this, but in my opinion this just complicates matters. Specifying the parent version as a property in one place would be so much easier.
