Maven site lifecycle phases

Maven site lifecycle handles everything related to generating documentation for your project.

Maven site lifecycle phases:

pre-site execute processes needed prior to the actual project site generation
site generate the project’s site documentation
post-site execute processes needed to finalize the site generation, and to prepare for site deployment
site-deploy deploy the generated site documentation to the specified web server

Example:

 <project xmlns = "http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
   xmlns:xsi = "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
