Also question is, what are the goals of Maven?
When Maven starts building a project, it steps through a defined sequence of phases and executes goals, which are registered with each phase. A goal represents a specific task which contributes to the building and managing of a project. It may be bound to zero or more build phases.
Beside above, what is the use of Maven clean? Usage. The Maven Clean Plugin, as the name implies, attempts to clean the files and directories generated by Maven during its build. While there are plugins that generate additional files, the Clean Plugin assumes that these files are generated inside the target directory.
Consequently, what is the use of target folder in Maven?
The target folder is the maven default output folder. When a project is build or packaged, all the content of the sources, resources and web files will be put inside of it, it will be used for construct the artifacts and for run tests. You can delete all the target folder content with mvn clean command.
