Another step towards a final release of Maven 3.0 was made the other day when version 3.0-beta-2 was released. I’ve been using Maven 3 since its alpha days, and despite the alpha/beta moniker, I find it to be superior to any Maven 2.x version. If you are starting a new project, I strongly recommend using Maven 3.
That being said, in the complete development environment there are a few missing pieces when working with Maven 3. One of these is getting Sonar to work with Maven 3, which had not been possible until the latest version of Sonar was released.
This post will explain how to get Maven 3 and Sonar to work together.
