Setting up develoment my environment.
Maven : My Rescue ToolA simple Google Search will show a heavy load of documents and links to follow over the topic. Maven is my primary build tool since the time I were introduced with build tools.
Defining EnvironmentIn my current work environment, I do not have access to administrator rights over the development machines. So, this is a challenge to manage and setup and development environment for your own.
Whenever I change my workstation, I have to reconfigure my work environment on this new machine. In time crunch as I do be in, it is very tough to keep up. So, in such necessity I have device this way to help me in easily setup and running my eco-system.
- A Maven release package.
- A Java installation.
- Old good Maven settings.
Environment setup toolI have created a script file env-maven.bat for Windows system and env-maven.sh for my Linux systems. Below is the content of script for Windows machines.
echo off set M2_HOME=D:/vshan/tools/apache-maven-2.2.1 set JAVA_HOME=D:/vshan/tools/jdk1.6.0_24 set PATH=%PATH%;%M2_HOME%/bin; C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe
This script executes and launch a command prompt with Maven executable is set in system class path.
