setup maven on mac

indeed nothing is special, but this post is about to remind me about the steps i followed to get my mac box with maven and jdk 1.5.

my requirements –

1. maven – 2.0.7
2. jdk 1.5
3. set maven bin to PATH variable.

i had 10.4.10 osx version.

to configure jdk 1.5 (jdk 1.4 is set as default jdk):

cd /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions
sudo rm CurrentJDK
sudo ln -s 1.5 CurrentJDK

to configure maven:

download maven binaries, copy it in your preferred location.
in my case i had it in – /Applications/java/maven-2.0.7/bin/ here.

execute following line –

vi ~/.bash_profile

change PATH with following value –

PATH=/usr/local/bin:/Applications/java/maven-2.0.7/bin/:$PATH

test your configuration –

java -version
it should say – java version “1.5.0_0x”
mvn -version
it should say – Maven version: 2.0.7

thats all will make your maven and jdk 1.5 environment up and running.
