1.4 Installing Apache Maven

Apache Maven, or Maven for short, is a software project management and comprehension tool which uses a central Project Object Model (POM) to manage a project’s build, reporting and documentation generation. POM files (pom.xml) are included in the projects for GreenPages.

To install Maven, visit the Maven website (http://maven.apache.org) and follow the download instructions from there. This document has been written and tested with Maven version 3.0.3. The rest of the document assumes that Maven commands (mvn …) are available from the command line.
