Jira vs Apache Maven: What are the differences?
Jira: The #1 software development tool used by agile teams to plan, track, and release great software. Jira's secret sauce is the way it simplifies the complexities of software development into manageable units of work Jira comes out-of-the-box with everything agile teams need to ship value to customers faster.; 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.
Jira belongs to "Issue Tracking" category of the tech stack, while Apache Maven can be primarily classified under "Java Build Tools".
"Powerful", "Flexible" and "Easy separation of projects" are the key factors why developers consider Jira; whereas "Dependency management", "Necessary evil" and "I’d rather code my app, not my build" are the primary reasons why Apache Maven is favored.
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, Jira has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2128 company stacks & 1530 developers stacks; compared to Apache Maven, which is listed in 305 company stacks and 142 developer stacks.

Most of my time in JIRA is spent
- Waiting for pages to load
- Clicking on links, because the information that I need is not available on the first pages I reach
- Looking for the next link to click, because each page has a different layout and the bug title or the latest comment might be placed anywhere on the page
Additionally, any time I search the documentation I get bug reports from years ago that appear unresolved or instructions for modifying the on-premesis installation (we have their cloud service).
Compared to Bugzilla and Redmine, Jira requires a lot of manual configuration which can make project issues not compatible status-wise.
It is used for bug tracking, issue tracking, and project management The basic use of this tool is to track issue and bugs related to your software and Mobile apps. It is also used for project management. The JIRA dashboard consists of many useful functions and features which make handling of issues easy.
Java build tool for internal processes: Jezebel daemon (in-mem classifiers/recommendations/feature analysis), Connemara (batch resume stream processor) and opes (opening elasticsearch plugin, simple process that listens for new incoming resumes and triggers analysis by Jezebel via a tcp json command).
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.
So much relief as you can track each and every issues, bugs, dev project and maintenance and a time machine when it comes to do that less interesting timesheet or daily status. Its a rescuer.
Gradle is powerful, but it feels too tempting to put more logic than is necessary in the build scripts. I also don't find the need to learn another language for my projects right now.
We use a combination of Scrum and Kanban for our tasks. We focus more on the integration with Bitbucket to keep track of tasks and have bi-directional accountability.
We use JIRA because it's a single tool that can be customized to each of our business processes: product development, customer on-boarding, and internal operations
The agile process planing feedback and control is done in JIRA, with integrations in all places, like bitbucket code, confluence pages and build process
Package management and build automation for the back-end, plus integration of front-end build automation using Gulp/Bower/NPM.
