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):
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 –
change PATH with following value –
test your configuration –
it should say – java version “1.5.0_0x”
it should say – Maven version: 2.0.7
thats all will make your maven and jdk 1.5 environment up and running.
