JitPack vs Apache Maven: What are the differences?
Developers describe JitPack as "JitPack builds GitHub Gradle and Maven projects on demand and provides ready-to-use packages". JitPack is an easy to use package repository for Gradle/Sbt and Maven projects We build GitHub projects on demand and provides ready-to-use packages.. 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.
JitPack and Apache Maven can be primarily classified as "Java Build" tools.
"Because uploading to maven central is a ball ache" is the top reason why over 5 developers like JitPack, while over 125 developers mention "Dependency management" as the leading cause for choosing Apache Maven.
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.

We use Apache Maven because it is a standard. Gradle is very good alternative, but Gradle doesn't provide any advantage for our project. Gradle is slower (without running daemon), need more resources and a learning curve is quite big. Our project can not use a great flexibility of Gradle. On the other hand, Maven is well-know tool integrated in many IDEs, Dockers and so on.
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.
Package management and build automation for the back-end, plus integration of front-end build automation using Gulp/Bower/NPM.
