The different phases of the default lifecycle are: Validate: Make sure the project is correct and that you have all of the necessary information. Test: Test the compiled source code using an appropriate unit testing framework. These tests should not demand that the code be packed or deployed; instead, take the compiled code and package it in a manner that can be distributed, such as a JAR. Compile: Compile the project's source code. Verify: Perform any necessary checks on integration test findings to ensure that quality criteria are met. Install: Adds the package to the local repository, allowing it to be used as a dependency in other projects. Deploy: Copies the entire package to the remote repository for sharing with other developers and organizations, and is done in the build environment.
