Meaning of different profiles (install, package, clean etc)? [message #25968] Sat, 09 May 2009 15:42 Go to next message

I have read through:

http://www.sonatype.com/products/maven/documentation/book-de fguide

but have not found any precise definition on what the different build
profiles actually do besides 'test':

"You run Maven tests whenever you run mvn package or mvn install. If you
would like to run all the lifecycle phases up to and including the test
phase, run
mvn test:"

I know this is very basic info for most of you guys but where do I find
documentation on what:

mvn package
mvn install
mvn build
mvn clean

etc. actually does?

This site
( http://maven.apache.org/guides/introduction/introduction-to- the-lifecycle.html)
has some details, including a description of all the phases in the three
different lifecycles.

I've never used 'mvn build' and am not sure if that is a real phase.
