Apache Maven has a two level strategy to resolve and distribute files, which we call artifacts.
The first level is called the <<<local repository>>>, which is the artifact cache on your system, by default located at <<<$\{user.home\}/.m2/repository>>>.
When executing Maven, it first looks in this local cache for artifacts. If the artifact cannot be found here, Maven will access the remote repositories to find the artifact.
Once found it will be stored into the local repository, so it's available for current and future usage.
With the <<<maven-install-plugin>>> you can put your artifacts in the local repository. To upload artifacts to a remote repository, you need to use the
* The <<<install:install>>> goal
In most cases, <<<install:install>>> goal doesn't need any configuration, it
needs the project's POM and the artifact file to be installed during the
<<<install>>> phase of the default build lifecycle.
mvn install
* The <<<install:install-file>>> goal
The <<<install:install-file>>> goal is used primarily for installing artifacts to
the local repository which were not built by Maven. The project's development team
may or may not provide a POM for the artifact. Here's a list of some of the available parameters for the
<<<install-file>>> goal:
mvn install:install-file -Dfile=your-artifact-1.0.jar \
[-DpomFile=your-pom.xml] \
[-Dsources=src.jar] \
[-Djavadoc=apidocs.jar] \
[] \
[-DartifactId=your-artifact] \
[-Dversion=1.0] \
[-Dpackaging=jar] \
[-Dclassifier=sources] \
[-DgeneratePom=true] \
* the groupId, artifactId, version and packaging of the file to install. These can
be taken from the specified pomFile, extracted from the pom.xml inside the artifact, and overridden or specified
using the command line. When the pomFile contains a <parent> section, the parent's
groupId can be considered if the groupId is not specified further for the
current project or on the command line.
* the optional <<<classifier>>> parameter can be used to
{{{./examples/installing-secondary-artifacts.html}install secondary artifacts}} for a project,
like a <<<javadoc>>> or <<<sources>>> JAR. If a classifier is not given, Maven assumes the file is the main
artifact for the project.
