Maven is used with Java, it's excellent because Maven will download all of the libraries you wish to use in your Application, Maven also uses Convention over Configuration so that by default you don't need to define the tasks you'd like to do.

If you'd like to get started with Maven I'd recommend Maven in 5 Minutes.
