Why don't you use Maven build tool when developing your Java applications ?


Overtime, i have met a couple of developers, I’ve known some indirectly or directly and I haven’t met any that uses maven to build their applications. Personally i avoid maven and for a certain reason. So here’s the question, is there a reason Nigerian coders are avoiding Maven ?

Anyway the reason I avoid Maven is the availability of internet and even when there is, the speed can be stupidly annoying. An yes there’s the cost of data every time maven repository updates and download packages for each compile.

However, i don’t dispute the fact that it is a good tool, i’d use it every time if i had the resources at my tips. So what other reasons are there ?
