Bootstrapping Maven
Set the environment variable M2_HOME pointing to the dir where you want Maven2 installed.
NOTE: presently, the directory {M2_HOME}/bin must be in your path:
set PATH=%PATH%;%M2_HOME%\bin
export PATH=$PATH:$M2_HOME/bin
In addition, the last part of the M2_HOME path MUST be of the form maven-$version, eg:
You can set the parameters passed to the Java VM when running Maven2 bootstrap,
setting the environment variable MAVEN_OPTS, e.g.
e.g. to run in offline mode, set MAVEN_OPTS=-o
Then run `ant`.
NOTE: You must run these instructions from this directory!
If you are behind a firewall, you will need to let the bootstrap process know.
To do this, create a file at ~/.m2/settings.xml and paste in the XML below,
substituting your settings for those provided. You can safely skip the
username, password and nonProxyHost elements if they are not relevant to you.
