Installing Maven in Mac

1. Download apache-maven-3.5.0-bin.tar.gz from Apache maven website.

2. extract the above file in any directory in your machine(lets refer as: <directory_maven>)

$ cd <directory_maven>
$ ls
(should list all contents)
$ export M2_HOME=/Users/<your username>/<directory_name>/apache-maven-3.5.0

Ex(in my machine): /Users/sriramkukkadapu/Downloads/apache-maven-3.5.0

Note : above path can also be something like /usr/local. provide accordingly.

$ export M2=$M2_HOME/bin

3. This is a important step. JAVA_HOME should be configured properly.
To check the current JDK home. go to the root folder in ur user(just do cd.. multiple times). 
Then go to /Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/
here you will find current JDK version. Ex jdk1.8.0_144.jdk (in my machine)

Now form the below path with your JDK Version Replaced.

/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/<Your JDK Version>/home

Ex(My machine) : /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/home

Now Set JAVA_HOME Variable.

$ export JAVA_HOME=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/home

4. Setting Path Variable to Java_Home/bin.

$ export PATH=$M2:$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

5. Done, Now check maven version

$ mvn –version
