Install and configure maven2 and maven3 from the binaries provided by the maven project



  • Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Red Hat, Fedora

The following Opscode cookbooks are dependencies:

  • java - this cookbook not only depends on the java virtual machine but it also depends on the java_ark LWRP present in the java cookbooks


  • default['maven']['version'] defaults to 2
  • default['maven']['m2_home'] defaults to '/usr/local/maven/', note that maven3 uses "m2_home" not "m3_home"
  • default['maven']['m2_download_url'] the download url for maven2
  • default['maven']['m2_checksum'] the checksum, which you will have to recalculate if you change the download url
  • default['maven']['m3_download_url'] download url for maven3
  • default['maven']['m3_checksum'] the checksum, which you will have to recalculate if you change the download url


Simply include the recipe where you want Apache Maven installed.
