Like many developers, I have tons of jobs running to compile, unit and integration test my code. These jobs take anywhere from 30 seconds to 30 minutes.
Some simple operations took a while…. I wondered why… Thanks to Oleg @ ZeroTurnAround I have an answer – Your Maven build is slow. Speed it up!
I applied the setting to speed up my build (30 minutes dropped to 10 minutes)
mvn clean package -T 4 -S local-m2/settings.xml
I hope this helps others.
