Still, knowing Maven is unavoidable for a Java programmer these days. Whether you're an application programmer that wants to make use of third party projects, or a (open source) library writer, the sheer popularity of Maven means you simply can't ignore it.

So, I advise everyone in Java to learn this tool, but I'm personally not the biggest fan of it.

I used to hate Maven with a passion. It's ideas are quite allright, but it's implementation and the organization of the Maven central repo was and still is a disaster. Dependency management is quite important these days, and it's one of the features Maven is best known for, but you can't use Maven only for its dependency management really. The mandated project structure and the entire "Maven way or the high way" comes coupled with it.
