Why is every argument in maven starting with-D
-DgroupId... -DartifactId... -DarchetypeArifactId... -DinteractiveMode... ...
every argument starts with "D," why?
It's pretty simple.
Define a system propertyand further, it's a self-reliance. And since, in most cases, single-box parameters from the value need not be separated by a gap, it is. I mean, maven actually sees that as a parameter.
-D groupId... -D artifactId... -D archetypeArifactId... -D interactiveMode
And maven has a lot of others. http://maven.apache.org/archives/maven-1.x/reference/command-line.html ♪
