Maven commands for AEM by Kiran Vedantam



What is Maven: Maven is an automation tool used to build and deploy the code for java applications. All the maven commands are supposed to be run in the command prompt (of course 😁)

How to check your maven version:

To run all the below mentioned commands, you need to have maven installed in your system (Pre-requisite 🤦 ). To check the version of your maven,

“mvn -v”

AEM and Maven:

In AEM maven is used to clean, build and install the code into different AEM instances. In this blog we will see various useful maven commands.

Cleaning the target directory code:

mvn clean

Cleaning and installing the code to a local repository:

mvn clean install


Generic maven commands are part of Maven life cycle [Ex: install]. They usually does not install your code in AEM. We need to use specific Maven plug-ins to achieve that.

Installing package (including bundle) into AEM instance:

mvn clean install -PautoInstallPackage

Installing only bundle into AEM instance:

mvn clean install -PautoInstallBundle

Adding the release version for your package via maven command:

mvn clean install -PautoInstallPackage -drelease.version=1.0.0

Skipping the unit tests written in java code during build:

Package build: mvn clean install -PautoInstallPackage -DskipTests
Bundle build: mvn clean install -PautoInstallBundle -DskipTests
Adding the profile in maven command:

mvn clean install -PautoInstallPackage -padobe-public

To build a single package:

mvn clean install -PbuildSinglePackage

To build and install single package on an AEM instance:
