Hi Everyone,

I tried installing Maven yesterday. But could not get it working. I followed the instruction given on the site but it doesn't work! When i run the command, this is what comes out:


I checked the installtion process, and it was all about setting the environment variables. I did them but it didn't work. These are the environment variables that i set up:
M2 - E:\Portlet_Stuff\apache-maven-2.2.1\bin
M2_HOME - E:\Portlet_Stuff\apache-maven-2.2.1
PATH - %JAVA_HOME%\bin;E:\Portlet_Stuff\apache-maven-2.2.1\bin
I hope these are correct or am i doing something wrong here?

What you get when you type --> echo %M2_HOME% in command prompt?

are you able to execute mvn --version from E:\Portlet_Stuff\apache-maven-2.2.1\bin directory? If yes then include the env variable M2_HOME in the PATH variable. after this you would be able to access mvn from any other directory.

If you're doing it in Linux, the current directory isn't part of the default execution path. Try "./mvn"

Better yet, set your environment:

Windows: "PATH ADD %MAVEN_HOME%\bin

Linux: "export PATH=$MAVEN_HOME/bin:$PATH"

and it's really not a good idea to actually use any of the maven software directories as a current (execution) directory. If you have the proper execution path setup, you can (and should) execute Maven while in the project's root directory.
