This is the very basic structure so that one can easily adapt the project structure and start with BDD testing.

I have entered the DS Algo project details and click Finish.
Now we need to set up dependencies in the pom.xml ( POM stands for Project Object Model. pom.xml file is nothing but it contains information of project and configuration information for the maven to build the project such as dependencies, build directory, source directory, test source directory, plugin, goals, etc.)
Maven automatically reads the pom.xml file, then executes the given task.
Now, go to pom.xml
Now visit the following URL to download the latest JAR Files into our project.
Query Junit in the search box and click on the latest jar version.
Copy the Maven XML Code and paste in pom.xml
Follow the same procedure for the cucumber jar.
That's it we have successfully created our first maven project in cucumber.
