Maven is a Java tool, so you must have Java installed in order to proceed.
Tools Used :
- JDK 1.6
- Maven 3.0.5
- Windows 7
Step 2: JDK and JAVA_HOME
Make sure JDK is installed, and "JAVA_HOME" variable is added in Windows environment variable, and point to the JDK folder.
Step 3: Extract downloaded apache-maven-3.0.5-bin.zip
Extract the downloaded zip file. In this case, we extracted to F:\ driver and renamed the folder, e.g F:\maven
Step 4: Add MAVEN_HOME
Add a new MAVEN_HOME variable to the Windows environment, and point it to your Maven folder.
Step 5: Add PATH
Update PATH variable, append “Maven bin folder” path, so that you can run the Maven’s command everywhere.
Step 6: Verification
Done, to verify it, in command prompt, type "mvn –version".
