Choose a version and download apache-maven-* file from here

Step 3: Extract It

Extract the downloaded zip file into desired location.

Step 4: Add MAVEN_HOME

Now, set the MAVEN_HOME variable just as you did for JAVA_HOME variable.

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with
    something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
