I hope many of you know how to use Maven with AnyPoint Studio, but I am still taking this step to teach those who aren't aware of this. To configure Maven to AnyPoint Studio, first we need to download it from the Apache Site.

Once downloaded, unzip the archive file into your C Drive if you are using Windows, or accordingly in your laptop or desktop based on your OS.

Then, go into the folder and see if the zip is correctly extracted or not, and locate the bin folder.

Then, add the bin folder to the PATH environment variable in OS accordingly in Windows or Mac.

Once it has been added to the environment variable, open a command prompt based on your OS.

Then run the mvn –v command to make sure that your Maven is configured correctly.

 When you see the below in your command, it's done correctly.

In your computer's file explorer, navigate to the default location of the local Maven repository:

 ${user_home}/.m2/ .

In Linux/Mac:  ~/.m2 In Windows: C:\Users\{yourUser}\.m2.

You may need to enable viewing of hidden files and folders. If this folder does not exist, do not create it. It will be created automatically. This location will now be referred to as  $M2 .

If the folder exists, drill-down and look for the repository subfolder:  ${user_home}/.m2/repository . Leave this window open.

Configure Anypoint Studio to Use Maven

Open Anypoint Studio.

Open Anypoint Studio preferences.

Expand Anypoint Studio and click Maven Settings.

Check the three checkboxes for Maven preferences.

If the Maven installation home directory is not set, browse to the location of your Maven.

Set a default groupId for new projects field to com.api.maventest.Image titleClick Test Maven Configuration and verify that the test passes.Image titleIn the left-side navigation, expand Java.

Under Build Path, select Classpath Variables.

Verify that the  JRE_LIB  and JRE_SRC   variables are pointing to a JDK and not a JRE.

Verify that there is an  M2_REPO  variable and that it is set to  ${user_home}/.m2/repository . If  M2_REPO  does not exist, click New and create a variable called  M2_REPO  that points to your repository location:  ${user_home}/.m2/repository .

Click OK.

You are all set with the configuration of Maven with Anypoint Studio.
