For Java, Why do we need a Build Tool like Maven, when we have an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) ?
Doing a Java build in an IDE is OK “Only” when it’s a simple project, for a single developer but once you go beyond that things start getting complicated and you'll need a build tool, such as Maven.
With complicated Java and Spring Framework projects you need to think about many more things. For example; other project dependencies, sharing code, version control etc...
