Hi, I use the Maven to build my web services project that uses the Spring framework.

It took me quite a while to sort out all the dependencies (such as the Spring framework, logging framework, etc.) in the "pom.xml" file and my very simple test project is up and running.

I have to do the real task now.

My real project Java classes have lots of import statements such as


And I have the JAR files for those packages. My question is where I should put those JARs? My project has the standard directory structure as show below. The proper places I can think of are either the "resources" folder or the "lib" folder. I am probably not on the right track. Please advise. Thank you.

-- src
-- main
-- java
-- resources
-- webapp
-- META-INF
-- WEB-INF
-- lib

Either deploy in your local maven repository (http://maven.apache.org/guides/mini/guide-3rd-party-jars-local.html) or use a an repositoriy manager like Nexus. In both cases you will reference your JAR in your pom like any other dependency.

The maven pom file determines where to put the jars. Maven can build a war file, ear file or just a jar file. In the dependency tag, there is <scope> and the default scope will be to include it in your archive. If you use <scope>provided</scope> then the dependency will not be included in your archive. It is all a build issue.
