Git + Maven

When I first started working with Git in my Maven projects (three years ago), it was very awkward. Half of the release commands didn't work at all. Second half worked, but with ugly workaround via faked remote repository, which violated the entire Git philosophy.

Since then most of the issues have been resolved, including the following three which I mostly needed:

  • support for local Git repositories;
  • separation of git-commit and git-push commands in Maven release plugin;
  • critical bug fixes in Maven release and scm plugins.

I created a cheat sheet describing the way I typically set up and manage Git-Maven projects. Feel free to use it in your projects as well.
