Subject [jira] (MNG-5749) Support installation of Maven via GVM (Groovy Versions Manager)
Date Mon, 05 Jan 2015 01:17:10 GMT


Sean Gilligan commented on MNG-5749:

Yeah, I'm using Brew for now.

I do think there's a void that could be filled with a GVM install for Maven or creating a
similar tool for Java/Maven, and I thought an "Improvement request" would be the way to do
it. You can go ahead an close this issue. Or, if you request, I can create a new issue with
a more general description of the problem.

I think there should be something in the ecosystem that manages versions of JVM command line
tools. I didn't realize how strongly GVM was intended to be "Groovy only".

Let me know if you want me to open a new (more generally stated issue) otherwise it is OK
with me if you close it.

> Installing and managing Maven versions could be made much easier with GVM. GVM works
great for managing Groovy, Grails, and Gradle versions. As far as I know there is no technical
reason it couldn't install and manage Maven as well.
> The GVM developers have no plans to add support for 'maven', but they may accept a contribution.
In the meantime I'm using Homebrew on Mac OS X, but GVM would be much nicer.
