Snapshot Vs Version in Maven

By | October 27, 2020

In this post, We will talk and learn about Snapshot Vs Version in Maven 

There are mainly 2 major versions made available for any maven project:

  • SNAPSHOT: This is nothing but the development version. The new version’s availability will be verified during every checkout and downloaded if it is required. This version is not allowed for releases.
  • FIXED: Downloaded only once to the local repository. This is downloaded when a major version of the software release happens.

Final Note:

Snapshots in maven are an idea to give version number as -SNAPSHOTS, it’s under development phase, it can be changed any time.

You are free to modify the SNAPSHOTS, but that artifact never changes after it is released.

That’s all about Snapshot Vs Version in Maven
