What is the use of Maven in Selenium WebDriver Automation Project?



  • Do we use Maven only to create dependencies in pom.xml file? Isn't there any other use of Maven in selenium project?



  • POM is surely one of the main advantages of Maven. But there are more:

    • Maven provides support for managing the full life cycle of a test project
    • Maven enables you to extend your project with maven plugins (test reports etc.)
    • JARS are done automatically this means that Maven automatically downloads the corresponding files
    • POM is centralized hence each tester or testengineer use same JAR dependencies
    • Provides structure with naming conventions -> easier to locate
