Let’s reemphasize the 3 key features here:
· Java projects managed in Git can now be built on the hosted build service
· Oracle Java JDK, Ant, and Maven libraries are available out-of-the-box on the hosted build image. This means you no longer need to check these libraries into source control, making it easier to setup new builds. It also reduces the amount of time spent extracting source at build time so your builds are faster Note: this feature applies to builds for both TFVC and Git projects.
· Java projects managed in TF version control can now be built using Maven on the hosted build service (previously only Ant was supported).
