Accelerate and Optimize Apache Maven™ Builds with Gradle Enterprise


Developers are under pressure to release software more and more often. No matter your build system, all builds eventually become slow and unreliable due to increasing complexity and regressions. Not to mention that debugging build issues is expensive, time-consuming and results in unnecessary friction amongst your engineering team.

Many Java software development teams use Apache Maven™ and migration to Gradle is not always an immediate option. Teams using Maven can now use Gradle Enterprise to get faster builds, increased build reliability, and self-service developer debugging without having to migrate to Gradle. Gradle Enterprise can shrink Maven build times by 50%-90%, recapturing millions of dollars in annual R&D savings.

This class demonstrates how you can improve your Maven build by using Gradle Enterprise. It contains several use cases and examples of publishing and interpreting build scans, adding custom data to build scans, doing data analytics, and using and optimizing the Gradle Enterprise build cache.

  • Capture build scans for Maven builds and understand where build time is spent
  • Speed up Maven builds with a remote build cache shared by your entire team and CI
  • Get insights on Maven build reliability


90-minute training session with Q&A.


Build masters and developers with a responsibility or interest in Maven builds.


This course requires a good understanding and working experience with Maven builds.
