This blog post will list down the steps on how we can install and configure Maven on a Windows machine.

1. Introduction

Maven is a project management and a build automation tool used primarily by Java programmers to manage the complete build life cycle of a project. Maven provides the following benefits:

  • It manages the project dependencies in a central local directory, so the project doesn't need to store 3rd party libraries in source control.
  • With Maven, you can add a new dependency quickly.
  • Maven can automatically identify transitive dependencies, download, and include them in the project.
  • Maven can use different plugins to do varying tasks such as generating JavaDoc, packaging the jar file, and more.

2. Installation

2.1 Download Maven from http://maven.apache.org/download.cgi.

2.2 Extract in c:/apache/maven. Make sure to rename the extracted folder apache-maven-3.6.3-bin to just maven.

3. Add MAVEN_HOME Environment Variable

Now we will add MAVEN_HOME Environment Variable. So that we can refer to this folder when we need to use Maven.

3.1 Open your Windows Explorer, right-click on This PC or My Computer and click Properties.


3.2 Click Advanced system settings / Environment Variables / New.

3.3 Enter Variable name=MAVEN_HOME and Variable value=c:\apache\maven. Click Ok.


4. Add Maven in Windows Environment Path

This will make the mvn command in c:/apache/maven/bin, available in the Windows terminal.

4.1 In the same view "Environment Variables", select Path and click Edit.


4.2 Click New, and in the new row enter: “%MAVEN_HOME%\bin”.

5. Verify Installation

5.1 Open a Windows terminal by pressing Windows + r, type "cmd", and press enter.

 

5.2 In the terminal enter mvn --version and hit enter.
