InformIT: Managing Java Build Lifecycles with Maven
"You've undoubtedly heard me talk about two primary contenders in the Java build tool space: Ant and Maven, but in actuality categorizing Maven as simply a build tool is doing it a disservice. Maven should rather be categorized as a project management or a project lifecycle management tool. Maven is meant to take control of the building, testing, and packaging of your application: your responsibility is to describe your project to Maven and its job is to manage its build lifecycle."

Turmoil Driven Development: OSGi With Scala, Java, Groovy, Maven and PAX
"In this first installment, I'm going to attempt to walk you through the setup of an OSGi project that is comprised of three OSGi bundles; one for Java, one for Groovy and one for Scala. In an effort to keep it simple, I'm going to employ a trivial hello world example in each bundle. The emphasis of this post is to introduce some concepts and illustrate how to get an environment up and running."
