I have some projects that use Maven. Here are the steps to get maven. Go to the Maven website. There is Maven 2 and Maven 3. Get the Maven 3 download. The name of the download is the following:
If you are using Windows, you can download the version with the zip extension. Download it and unpack it on your local drive. Now add it to your path.
Linux (bash) export PATH=<Maven_home_directory>/bin
Windows set PATH=<Maven_home_directory>/bin;%path%
Now test it with the following command:
You should see version output similar to the following:
brian@rt13:~$ mvn -version Apache Maven 3.0.4 (r1232337; 2012-01-17 00:44:56-0800) Maven home: /home/brian/pkg/apache-maven-3.0.4 Java version: 1.6.0_18, vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc. Java home: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8
You now have Maven working.
