The maven-buildmetadata-plugin is a Maven 2 plugin that helps you easily add build metadata to generated archive artifacts. When a product is running on an application server, this tool can tell you which version of which artifact is currently running on that server, which artifact maps to which source code version in the SCM repository, what configuration set (including profiles and environment variables) has been used to generate the artifact, on which machine was the artifact built, and when was the artifact built. The provided metadata include SCM information, build time, operating system, Java runtime, Maven execution information, build user, build host name, and build version.
android-metadata is a utility library for Android designed to simplify reading metadata values from AndroidManifest.xml. It can quickly access metadata values from anywhere with a few lines of code, read individual metadata values into type-specific variables, and read one or more metadata values into annotated Java classes.
