Maven is entirely based on the build lifecycle. As you know that the build lifecycle has different phases. Each phase of the lifecycle represents a stage on the build.
Following are the phases of a default lifecycle:
validate – validate the project is correct and all necessary information is available
compile – compile the source code of the project
test – test the compiled source code using a suitable unit testing framework. These tests should not require the code be packaged or deployed
package – take the compiled code and package it in its distributable format, such as a JAR.
verify – run any checks on results of integration tests to ensure quality criteria are met
install – install the package into the local repository, for use as a dependency in other projects locally
deploy – done in the build environment, copies the final package to the remote repository for sharing with other developers and projects.
