Apache Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on the concept of a project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project’s build, reporting and documentation from a central piece of information.
Maven is distributed in several formats for your convenience. Use a source archive if you intend to build Maven yourself. Otherwise, simply pick a ready-made binary distribution and follow the installation instructions given at the end of this document.
You will be prompted for a mirror – if the file is not found on yours, please be patient, as it may take 24 hours to reach all mirrors.
In order to guard against corrupted downloads/installations, it is highly recommended to verify the signature of the release bundles against the public KEYS used by the Apache Maven developers.
