Is there any where i can download the maven eclipse plugin so that i can install it manually without using an update site? The download site for the plugin http://eclipse.org/m2e/download/ only provides information of how to download it directly from the Eclipse IDE but not how to download it as a Zip file.

I need to install it on a Server that has no connectivity to the outside world so i need to download it as a zip archive then install it manually.
I also found out that the Maven plugin comes pre-packaged with Eclipse for JAVA developers but not Eclipse for JAVA EE developers. (Which is the one i am using).

Thanks

There is no download that I know of. But here is something you could try: install Eclipse and m2e on a system that has connectivity to the network. Once done, zip up the Eclipse directory, copy the ZIP file to your Server, and unzip it there.

By the way, I assume that the Server has a fully-populated local repository (or something similar), otherwise Maven won't work on there anyway.

Yes the server does have a local maven repository which is managed by Nexus.

Download zip file apache-maven-3.0.4-bin. You can choose the latest version. Set the environment variable MAVEN_HOME to apache-maven-3.0.4-bin directory. create " .m2 " folder and inside .m2 folder, create one more folder called repository. In apache-maven-3.0.4-bin folder there will be conf folder. Conf folder will be having settings.xml file. Copy that settings.xml file to " .m2" folder. Modify the settings.xml in .m2 for proxy settings. set the environment variable M2_REPOS to " .m2 " folder. Run the mvn --version command from command prompt to check whether maven installation from zip file is correct or not.

Dipti, you misunderstood Ziggy's question. The question was how to install the m2e plugin, not how to install Maven.
