How to Display a Message in Maven

Learn how to print messages to the console or to a file during a Maven build using various plugins.

Sometimes, we might want to print some extra information during Maven’s execution. However, there’s no built-in way to output values to the console in the Maven build lifecycles.

In this tutorial, we’ll explore plugins that enable printing messages during Maven execution. We’ll discuss three different plugins, each of which can be bound to a specific Maven phase of our choosing.

messageformat is Working Hard to Make Themselves Obsolete

messageformat is an OpenJS Foundation project that handles both pluralization and gender in applications. It helps keep messages in human-friendly formats, and can be the basis for tone and accuracy that are critical for applications. Pluralization and gender are not a simple challenge, and deciding on which message format to implement can be pushed down the priority list as development teams make decisions on resources. However, this can lead to tougher transitions later on in the process with both technology and vendor lock-in playing a role.

Quick note: The upstream spec is called ICU MessageFormat. ICU stands for International Components for Unicode: a set of portable libraries that are meant to make working with i18n easier for Java and C/C++ developers. If you’ve worked on a project with i18n/l10n, you may have used the ICU MessageFormat without knowing it.

To find out more about messageformat, I spoke with Eemeli Aro, Software Developer at Vincit, and OpenJS Cross Project Council (CPC) member. Aro maintains the messageformat libraries, and actively participates in various efforts to improve JavaScript localization. Aro spoke on “The State of the Art in Localization” at last year’s Node+JS Interactive. Aro is an active participant in ECMA-402 processes, runs the monthly HelsinkiJS meetups, and helps organise React Finland conferences.

How do formats deal with nuances in language?

It’s all about choices. Variance, e.g. how the greeting used by a program could vary from one instance to the next, gets dealt with by having the messaging format that you’re using support the ability to have choices. So you can have some random number coming in and depending on the choice of that random number, you select one of a number of choices. This functionality isn’t directly built into ICU MessageFormat, but it’s very easily implementable in a way that gets you results.

We need to decide how we deal with choices and whether you can have just a set number of different choice types. Is it a sort of generic function that you can define and then use? It’s an interesting question, but ICU MessageFormat doesn’t yet provide an easy, clear answer to that. But it provides a way of getting what you want.

What are the biggest problems with messaging formats?

Perhaps the biggest problem is that while ICU MessageFormat is the closest we have to a standard, that doesn’t mean it is in standard use by everyone. There are a number of different other standards. There are various versions that are used by a number of tools and workflows and other processes in terms of localization. The biggest challenge is that when you have some kind of interface and you want to present some messages in that interface, there isn’t one clear solution that’s always the right one for you.

And then it also becomes challenging because, for the most part, almost any solution that you end up with will solve most of the problems that you have. This is the scope in which it’s easy to get lock-in. Effectively, if you have a workflow that works with one standard or one set of tools or one format that you’re using, then you have some sort of limitation. Eventually, at some point, you will want to do something that your systems aren’t supporting. You can feel like it’s a big cost to change that system, and therefore you make do with what you have, and then you get a suboptimal workflow and a suboptimal result. Eventually, your interface and whole project may not work as well.

It’s easy to look at messageformat and go, “That’s too complicated for us, let’s pick something simpler.” You end up being stuck with “that something simpler” for the duration of whatever it is that you’re working on.

You’re forced to make a decision between two bad options. So the biggest challenge is it would be nice to have everyone agree that “this is the right thing to do” and do it from the start! (laughs)

But of course that is never going to happen. When you start building an interface like that, you start with just having a JSON file with keys and messages. That will work for a long time, for a really great variety of interfaces, but it starts breaking at some point, and then you start fixing it, and then your fix has become your own custom bespoke localization system.

Custom Maven Plugin in Mule 4

Problem Faced

Last week, I received a minor Change Requirement from the Client to add a field in the API Specs (RAML)

The requirement was critical, and so I quickly made the RAML change in code, pushed it to Github Repo, and got it merged to Dev.

What I missed was: updating the same change in the corresponding API in exchange.

Though I pushed those changes to exchange the next day (I got another Change Request, and while publishing the RAML change to Exchange, I remembered what I missed.

By the way, we do have a checklist to be followed for every new CR that is raised, but the change was so minor and critical, that I neglected the Checklist!

What is RAML Sync Verifier Plugin?

The custom plugin:

  • Checks if the Raml in API implementation project is in Sync with the Raml in Exchange
  • Gives you options to pass various configurations
  • Fails the build if the RAMLs are not in sync with each other (This configuration can be turned off).

Why Is It Required

The RAML published to Exchange and the Raml in your API implementation should be in SYNC for a particular environment.

There are plenty of good reasons for that:

  • Maintaining consistency of code
  • Version control
  • Reusing Fragments and canonicals

Note: Adding the API ID (From API Manager) and Autodiscovery will not make the RAML in code in sync with exchange.

I hate making the same mistake twice (At least when it comes to Tech Stuff!), so I created a very simple custom Maven plugin, which, during the build process, checks if the RAMLS are in sync.

Source Code Link

I will be describing briefly about the Plugin code, and the complete code with example mule app can be found at GitHub Repo

Pre-Requisites:
Knowledge about developing Maven Custom Plugin
  • Knowledge about Mule 4 apps and Anypoint Platform
  • Anypoint Studio Installed
  • Maven installed
  • Eclipse installed
  • Valid AnyPoint Credentials
  • Have developed a simple Mule app with a basic API spec in design center using above credentials

About the Code

Project Structure

The Plugin has just one Mojo. A Java mojo consists simply of a single class representing one plugin’s goal.

Getting Started With Maven For Selenium Testing

While working on a project for test automation, you’d require all the Selenium dependencies associated with it. Usually these dependencies are downloaded and upgraded manually throughout the project lifecycle, but as the project gets bigger, managing dependencies can be quite challenging. This is why you need build automation tools, such as Maven, to handle them automatically.

Maven can be more specifically defined as a software project management tool that uses the concepts of project object model (POM). It enables the user to create an initial folder structure, perform compilation and testing, and then package and deploy the final product. It efficiently cuts down several steps followed in the build process and makes the build a one step process.

In this Selenium Maven tutorial, I’ll explain what Maven is and why Maven is important as a build automation tool. Further, I’ll show you how to install Maven for your Selenium test automation projects and run your first project in this Selenium Maven tutorial. In case you aren’t familiar with Selenium, you can refer to this detailed web page on, what is Selenium?

Why Use Maven?

Maven plays a crucial role in managing a project lifecycle, which typically includes validation, code generation, compilation, testing, packaging and much more. It is a software build tool that works in phases rather than tasks (as in the case of Ant). It is basically used to manage the life cycle of a project. Maven makes the build management process much easier, as you’ll only need to specify the dependencies in the pom.xml files and Maven will take care of the rest!

Some of the key reasons Maven is used are:

  • It simplifies the build process and provides a uniform system
  • It handles compilation, distribution, dependency management and other tasks efficiently.
  • It increases reusability.
  • It reduces steps, like adding jar files to the project library, building reports, executing JUnit test cases, creating jar/war/ear files for deployment.
  • It has a repository which is centralized that manages jar files.

Now that we know why to use Maven, let’s explore a bigger question in this Selenium Maven tutorial, What is Maven?

What Is Maven?

By now, you already have the idea that Maven is a build automation tool which is used to manage the project dependency and the whole project lifecycle. Maven is built by Apache Software Foundation and is used majorly for Java projects. It was initially developed to make the build process of the Jakarta Turbine Project much simpler and is now widely used to make build processes easy and uniform.

Maven can be more specifically defined as a software project management tool that uses the concepts of project object model (POM). It enables the user to create initial folder structure, perform compilation and testing and then package and deploy the final product. It efficiently cuts down several steps followed in the build process and rather makes the build a one step process.
