Maven Dependencies Pop Quiz

Andres Almiray
Hello everyone!

If I can ask you for 15 minutes of your time, I've put of a 14 question pop
quiz on dependency resolution. I'm hopeful that this quiz will let us
realize a few things about the dependency resolution mechanism and its
rules, perhaps address concerns in the future and make Maven better as a
result.

The quiz can be found at https://bit.ly/maven-dependencies-popquiz and is
totally anonymous (no email address collected). Unless you feel like
sharing your name ;-)

Some preliminary numbers to this date:

 - 3 people have 13 correct answers
 - 3 people have 12correct answers
 - 10 people have 11 correct answers

The current median is 8. Some quick feedback left:

 - pretty tricky, even for an almost 20 year maven dude. good job!
 - I've never seen documentation on this
 - Good food for thought. I guess I generally hope Maven does what I expect
and when it doesn't, I start specifying more exactly what I want.

Please feel free to share it with your colleagues and friends. More entries
mean more data and better results. Thank you!

Cheers,
Andres

Kind of frustrating to not be shown my score at the end...

That's strange, you should get the number of correct answers at the end of
the quiz although I don't know if it actually shows you which answers were
incorrect when that's the case.

All data and results will be made public once the quiz is closed.

Thank you for participating.

Cheers,
Andres

BTW: I am quite sure, it depends also on the Maven version. The version
handling of something like 25.1-android has changed over time.

Great quiz!

I got 12/14 because I was a bit lazy in the beginning.
Forgot my twitter handle, please add @bmarwell - thanks!

If you had some experience with wrong or mixed dependency versions, it
is pretty straightforward.
But if you never had these problems, it is very hard to solve!

Thanks for sharing!

On the last page, when you end the test, there is a button to display the
result.
I missed it too the first time.

Re: Maven Dependencies Pop Quiz

james northrup
hmm, there's a moderately hard pop quiz for maven on linkedin tests.  it
starts out asking a few questions about how to build archetypes more or
less blindfolded.
