I'm very lucky to have been able to write this book with the core Maven team. They are all great developers and working with them on Maven since 2002 has been an endless source of discoveries and enlightening. Jason van Zyl and I were initially supposed to write half of the book but we soon realized that there was a substantial amount of work to be done on the code to stabilize Maven and the plugins before we could write about it. This is when Brett Porter, Carlos Sanchez and John D. Casey stepped up to the plate and jumped on board to help us. They ended up writing a big portion of the book and improving the overall book's quality by several folds. Thank you guys! We owe you. I'd like to thank Jason of course who's guided Maven all those years and who's had the foresight and courage to rewrite Maven 2 from scratch, taking into account all learnings from the past. A special thank goes to Jesse McConnell who's helped me a lot to write the J2EE chapter and especially the Web Services part. Thanks also to all our reviewers who provided great
