JFrog Artifactory vs Apache Maven: What are the differences?

Developers describe JFrog Artifactory as "Enterprise Universal Repository Manager". It integrates with your existing ecosystem supporting end-to-end binary management that overcomes the complexity of working with different software package management systems, and provides consistency to your CI/CD workflow. On the other hand, Apache Maven is detailed as "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.

JFrog Artifactory belongs to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack, while Apache Maven can be primarily classified under "Java Build Tools".

Apache Maven is an open source tool with 1.74K GitHub stars and 1.28K 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 305 company stacks & 142 developers stacks; compared to JFrog Artifactory, which is listed in 16 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.
