Download Java SDK
Before downloading Maven, you need the java SDK
Install it to a pathname without spaces, such as c:\j2se1.6.
Once Java is installed, you must ensure that the commands from the Java SDK are in your PATH environment variable.
Set environmental variable JAVA_HOME to installation dir
Control Panel\System and Security\System
> Advanced system settings > SYSTEM VARIABLES > NEW
Append the full path of the Java compiler to the system path
Append the string C:\jdk1.7.0_79 to the end of the system variable ‘PATH’
- navigate in explorer to the Maven directory
- go to a dir IN the bin
- copy the address in the address bar(must end with bin)
- go to Start and type in “env”
- Select “edit the system evironment variables”
- find the PATH variable which must also have an existing value for Java as Maven needs Java.
- append a ; + paste the path.
- restart to update system
- run “mvn install” in the client ???
Download the ‘binaries’? *BIN* & *SRC*
Maven in PATH
You run Maven by invoking a command-line tool: mvn.bat from the bin directory of the Maven. To do this conveniently, c:\mvn3.0.4\bin must be in your PATH, just like the J2SE SDK commands. You can add directories to your PATH in the control panel; the details vary by Windows version.
Add M2_HOME to sys vars
PATH variable, append Maven bin folder –
%M2_HOME%\bin, so that you can run the Maven’s command everywhere.
Check install using
Should echo back windows etc.
Go to the src dir
Run mvn install
