installing maven on linux

Maven offers quite a bit as a enterprise build tool.  It can help ensure that standards are followed and offers support for automated testing.  This tool is actually really simple to install.  It is just a matter of unpacking it and adding it to your path.

This is described on a lot of locations on the internet.

The nice thing about most of the major linux distributions is that most major packages provide a package to install Maven.  This takes care of both the installation and setup of the path.

However, in my test this also installed a lot of other java packages that should not have been necessary.

apt-get install maven
