Installation of Maven

To install Maven on your system, follow these steps:

Step 1: Check Prerequisites

  1. Before installing Maven, make sure you have the following prerequisites installed on your system:
  2. Java Development Kit (JDK): Maven requires Java to be installed on your system. You can download and install the latest JDK from the Oracle website or adopt OpenJDK.

Step 2: Download Maven

  1. Go to the Apache Maven website: https://maven.apache.org/download.cgi
  2. Under "Files," download the latest binary zip archive of Maven (e.g., apache-maven-3.x.x-bin.zip). Make sure to choose the binary version, not the source version.

Step 3: Extract the Archive

  1. Once the download is complete, extract the contents of the downloaded zip archive to a directory of your choice. For example, you can extract it to C:\Program Files (on Windows) or /opt (on Linux).

Step 4: Set Environment Variables (Optional)

  1. (Windows Only) Set the M2_HOME environment variable to the directory where Maven is installed. For example, if you extracted Maven to C:\Program Files\apache-maven-3.x.x, set M2_HOME to that path.
  2. (Windows Only) Add %M2_HOME%\bin to the PATH environment variable to make Maven commands accessible from the command prompt.
  3. (Linux Only) Set the M2_HOME environment variable and add the bin directory to the PATH in the appropriate shell configuration file (e.g., .bashrc, .bash_profile, or .zshrc). For example:


export M2_HOME=/opt/apache-maven-3.x.x

export PATH=$PATH:$M2_HOME/bin


Step 5: Verify Installation

  1. Open a new terminal or command prompt.
  2. Run the following command to check if Maven is installed and configured correctly:


mvn --version

  • This will display the installed Maven version and other relevant information.
  • If you see the Maven version and other details in the output, it means Maven is installed successfully.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Apache Maven on your system. You can now use Maven to manage your Java projects, handle dependencies, and perform various build tasks.

Experiment No. 5 Title: Applying CI/CD Principles to Web Development Using Jenkins, Git, and Local HTTP Server

  Experiment No. 5 Title: Applying CI/CD Principles to Web Development Using Jenkins, Git, and Local HTTP Server  Objective: The objective of this experiment is to set up a CI/CD pipeline for a web development project using Jenkins, Git, and webhooks, without the need for a Jenkinsfile. You will learn how to automatically build and deploy a web application to a local HTTP server whenever changes are pushed to the Git repository, using Jenkins' "Execute Shell" build step. Introduction: Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) is a critical practice in modern software development, allowing teams to automate the building, testing, and deployment of applications. This process ensures that software updates are consistently and reliably delivered to end-users, leading to improved development efficiency and product quality. In this context, this introduction sets the stage for an exploration of how to apply CI/CD principles specifically to web development using J

Experiment No. 6 Title: Exploring Containerization and Application Deployment with Docker

  Experiment No. 6 Title: Exploring Containerization and Application Deployment with Docker  Objective: The objective of this experiment is to provide hands-on experience with Docker containerization and application deployment by deploying an Apache web server in a Docker container. By the end of this experiment, you will understand the basics of Docker, how to create Docker containers, and how to deploy a simple web server application. Introduction Containerization is a technology that has revolutionised the way applications are developed, deployed, and managed in the modern IT landscape. It provides a standardised and efficient way to package, distribute, and run software applications and their dependencies in isolated environments called containers. Containerization technology has gained immense popularity, with Docker being one of the most well-known containerization platforms. This introduction explores the fundamental concepts of containerization, its benefits, and how it differs

Experiment No. 10 Title: Create the GitHub Account to demonstrate CI/CD pipeline using Cloud Platform.

  Experiment No. 10 Title: Create the GitHub Account to demonstrate CI/CD pipeline using Cloud Platform. Objective: The objective of this experiment is to help you create a GitHub account and set up a basic CI/CD pipeline on GCP. You will learn how to connect your GitHub repository to GCP, configure CI/CD using Cloud Build, and automatically deploy web pages to an Apache web server when code is pushed to your repository. Introduction: Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines are essential for automating the deployment of web applications. In this experiment, we will guide you through creating a GitHub account and setting up a basic CI/CD pipeline using Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to copy web pages for an Apache HTTP web application. Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) is a crucial practice in modern software development. It involves automating the processes of code integration, testing, and deployment to ensure that software changes are co
