Desktop Notifier for Maven
Simple build extension for Maven 3.0.2 or newer which notifies the user when a build is complete.
Currently supported on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows (through various notification senders) and on all systems running Java 6.
To build the desktop notifier, download a copy of the sources, and then from within the directory:
To install the desktop notifier, simply copy
target/desktop-maven-notifier-*.jar to the
lib/ext directory of your Maven installation.
On Linux Maven Desktop Notifier uses
notify-send and, where available,
kdialog. Tests were performed on Gnome 3, KDE 4 and Unity
but other compliant implementations, for instance those provided by Cinnamon and Xfce, should work just fine.
Mac OS X
On Mac OS X 10.8 or higher, Maven Desktop Notifier uses
terminal-notifier. Installation instructions for
terminal-notifier can be found
There is preliminary support for Windows 7 and 8 using Snarl.
Java System Tray
If none of the notification senders described above are available on your machine, or if simply you're running a different operating system, Maven Desktop Notifier will fallback to using the Java System Tray mechanism for displaying pop-ups. This requires Java 6 or newer.
