Recently on Styling Android we’ve been looking at the ActionBar, but this would not be complete without having a look at how we can customise the look and feel of our ActionBar.

Following on from the recent series on basic ActionBar, we’ll now have a look at concept which can really make our ActionBar even more powerful: ActionMode.

In the previous article we looked at the Maven build lifecycle. In this concluding part, we’ll have a brief tour of some of the more advanced things that we can do with Maven which may convince you that Mavenising your build can provide you with great benefits.
In the previous article we had a look at Maven repositories and saw how Maven can automatically retrieve artifacts from public repositories an put them in to our local one. In this article we’ll look at the Maven build lifecycle, and how we can use Maven to put our own artifacts in to repositories.
