AWS CodeDeploy vs Apache Maven: What are the differences?

AWS CodeDeploy: Coordinate application deployments to Amazon EC2 instances. AWS CodeDeploy is a service that automates code deployments to Amazon EC2 instances. AWS CodeDeploy makes it easier for you to rapidly release new features, helps you avoid downtime during deployment, and handles the complexity of updating your applications; Apache Maven: Apache build manager for Java projects. Maven allows a project to build using its project object model (POM) and a set of plugins that are shared by all projects using Maven, providing a uniform build system. Once you familiarize yourself with how one Maven project builds you automatically know how all Maven projects build saving you immense amounts of time when trying to navigate many projects.

AWS CodeDeploy belongs to "Deployment as a Service" category of the tech stack, while Apache Maven can be primarily classified under "Java Build Tools".

Some of the features offered by AWS CodeDeploy are:

  • AWS CodeDeploy fully automates your code deployments, allowing you to deploy reliably and rapidly
  • AWS CodeDeploy helps maximize your application availability by performing rolling updates across your Amazon EC2 instances and tracking application health according to configurable rules
  • AWS CodeDeploy allows you to easily launch and track the status of your deployments through the AWS Management Console or the AWS CLI

On the other hand, Apache Maven provides the following key features:

  • Simple project setup that follows best practices - get a new project or module started in seconds
  • Consistent usage across all projects means no ramp up time for new developers coming onto a project
  • Superior dependency management including automatic updating, dependency closures (also known as transitive dependencies)

"Automates code deployments" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeDeploy over the competitors, whereas "Dependency management" was stated as the key factor in picking Apache Maven.

Apache Maven is an open source tool with 1.71K GitHub stars and 1.26K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apache Maven's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Apache Maven has a broader approval, being mentioned in 301 company stacks & 138 developers stacks; compared to AWS CodeDeploy, which is listed in 57 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.

    All Java-Projects are compiled using Maven. We prefer it over Ant and Gradle as it combines lightweightness with feature-richness and offers basically all we can imagine from a software project-management tool and more.
