Note: Click on the full-screen button in the player when watching the screencast.

This screencast explains the basics of how Maven repositories and artifact dependencies work. In this lesson you’ll learn how Maven coordinates are defined for an artifact in the Project Object Model (POM) file. Then you’ll learn how to reference a dependent artifact using the coordinate system. We’ll take a look at local and remote repositories and how they interact. We’ll also learn how artifacts are installed into the local repository and play around on the command line to see all of these features in action.

You can find all of my screencasts on my Screencasts page which is linked off the top-level navigation for the site.

    It seens some screen recorder like DemoCreator can do this. If you can add the zoom-n-pan effect to the movie, it could be better.

    Thanks for the feedback. If you go look at my other screencasts, I have zoom and pan effects. I guess I didn’t really see the need for them in this one, but I’ll go take another look and add them if necessary.

    I’m using Camtasia Studio right now, but I’ve been meaning to demo some other screen capturing software. I’ll check out DemoCreator.
