Maven Command Line Wrapper Example

Introduction

This is a basic Maven project illustrating the usage of Maven Command Line Wrapper.

The wrapper is generated through a custom Maven plugin and available as a Maven goal through the wrapper namespace.

The Maven Command Line Wrapper will auto-download and install Apache Maven from the Internet and then run your Maven goals.

Check out the pom.xml for the build/plugins entry for the wrapper-maven-plugin. To use snapshots instead of releases, you’ll need to add as well as a pluginRepositories section.

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
         xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
         xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">

      <!-- ADD A REFERENCE TO THE MAVEN WRAPPER PLUGIN -->
      <plugin>

        <artifactId>wrapper-maven-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>0.0.5-SNAPSHOT</version>
        <configuration>
	    <!-- optional base distribution url --> 
         <baseDistributionUrl>https://repository.apache.org/content/repositories/releases/org/apache/maven/apache-maven</baseDistributionUrl>
         <!-- optional wrapper jar output folder -->
          <wrapperDirectory>${basedir}/maven</wrapperDirectory>
        </configuration>
      </plugin>

    </plugins>
  </build>

  <!-- 
  ADD A REFERENCE TO THE SONATYPE SNAPSHOTS REPOSITORY if you want to use snapshots
  -->
  <pluginRepositories>
    <pluginRepository>
      <id>sonatype.snapshots</id>
      <url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/</url>
    </pluginRepository>
  </pluginRepositories>
</project>

You can run the build with the mvnw scripts instead of the Maven mvn command.

mvnw install

There’s already a Maven Wrapper(mvnw) at the root of this project, however you can re-generate it using the following command:

mvn wrapper:wrapper

Use-cases of the Maven Wrapper

  • You have a new or existing Maven project.
  • You understand the concept of Gradle Command Line Wrapper and you want to take the advantage of the Maven Wrapper.
  • You add the plugin to the build section of your Maven POM and a reference to the Sonatype OSS repository in my pluginRepositories section.
  • You notice that the Maven Wrapper plugin detects your current Maven version and uses it to generate the wrapper properties file for the download URL.
  • You can also customize the wrapper output folder with a path relative to my project folder. The Maven download URL is also customizable.
  • You realize that the Maven Wrapper really IS the same as the Gradle Wrapper except that it’s not a built-in plugin, but an externally provided plugin.

Proxy server configuration

If you’re behind a proxy, please set MAVEN_OPTS accordingly:

set MAVEN_OPTS=-Dhttp.proxyHost=proxyhost -Dhttp.proxyPort=8080 -Dhttps.proxyHost=proxyhost -Dhttps.proxyPort=8080
