How to install Apache Maven in Ubuntu 13.04

In this post I'm going to explain n how to setup apache maven on your ubuntu box. 

First Download the apache-maven-3.0.5-bin.tar.gz from the website.

Then go to the downloaded folder and extract the downloaded bundle using the following command.

tar -zxf apache-maven-3.0.5-bin.tar.gz

Then copy that folder where ever you want in your computer. In this example I copy it to my home folder.

sudo cp -R apache-maven-3.0.5 /home/aruna

Then the final step is to create the symbolic link to the maven executable. Use the following command to create the symbolic link.
sudo ln -s /home/aruna//apache-maven-3.0.5/bin/mvn /usr/bin/mvn  

Now you are almost done and execute the following command to check the installation.
mvn –version  

Then you'll probably get the following output.

Apache Maven 3.0.5 (r01de14724cdef164cd33c7c8c2fe155faf9602da; 2013-02-19 19:21:28+0530)
