Interview Questions and Answers

 Q1. What are different dependency scopes in Maven ?Maven
Ans. Compile

This is the default scope. Compile dependencies are available in all classpaths of a project. Moreover, these dependencies are propagated to dependent projects.


This is much like compile, but indicates you expect the JDK or a container to provide the dependency at runtime.


This scope indicates that the dependency is not required for compilation, but is for execution.


This scope indicates that the dependency is is only available for the test compilation and execution phases. This scope is not transitive.


This scope is similar to provided except that you have to provide the JAR which contains it explicitly.
