Maven seems to be one of those topics that brings out passion in many developers. In this series of articles, I want to take a look at some of the common myths and ideas that circulate about Maven, and see how they stand up to the light of scientific examination. Last time, we looked at the idea that Maven automatically updates for every build. This time we look at another myth quoted in this article: that Maven requires an internet connection to delete a directory.

Not exactly busted. The author confirms that Maven needs net access to delete a directory in some circumstances. The "myth" he's busting is one he's created himself. Note that he acknowledges Spillner's article never said Maven needs a net connection /every time/ for deleting directories. However, the author believes Spillner's statements imply this "myth".
