IBM DeveloperWorks: Build better Web applications with Google Sitebricks: Create a sample Java Web application using Maven, Sitebricks, and Guice
"Sitebricks, which is still in beta, is a new Java™ Web application framework. You might wonder, "Why do I need yet another Web framework?" With Google Sitebricks you can rapidly build a Web application that can be maintained, or worked on, by others. Sitebricks is built on top of Guice. It expands and extends many of the principles of Guice to the Web. Like Guice, it makes aggressive use of annotations to keep configuration as part of the code. You will not have to create or edit a lot of XML files to use Guice. Instead, Sitebricks lets you create Web applications while writing a lot less code. The code you write will be straightforward. You can look at Sitebricks code and quickly understand what's going on. Sitebricks does not compromise type safety or performance."

Java Evangelist John Yeary's Blog: Introduction to Apache Maven Presentation
"This is an Introduction to Apache Maven presentation that I gave at the Greenville Java Users Group on the 11th of February. It covers the basics of installing and configuring Apache Maven. It also demonstrates creating three projects from relatively simple to a more complex Apache MyFaces and Facelets example. I also demonstrate the power of using the Jetty plugin to deploy and test our application. Finally I create a project site which contains information gathered from the pom.xml and project files including any unit testing."
