maven project clean install and build and adding as war web plugin

Hi,

When right click on maven project from eclipse and give goal like below

clean install

what it does?

when i give like below

build
it says unknow command

how to build?
is install same as build?
where i can find all list of frequenctly used commmands from command prompt and also from eclipse.

how to add one other project(say xyz) as plugin into existing project (say abc)



i have to change below to war instead of jar inside the xyz pom file?
<packaging>war</packaging>
when i change package to war then refresh i see Deployment Descripot created for that project.
when i right on above say generate stubs looks like stubs generaed. wonder why we need stubs?

To build a Maven project you would probably use the "package" goal. That will compile the source code into class files and package those class files into a JAR/WAR. The install will do all that, but will also then copy that packaged file to the local Maven repository, usually a directory called ".m2" in your user directory or a root directory.

For more info on this and other goals see https://maven.apache.org/guides/introduction/introduction-to-the-lifecycle.html

how .m2 in user directory and root directory are related or different?
