Downloading Apache Maven 3.8.6

Apache Maven 3.8.6 is the latest release and recommended version for all users.

System Requirements

Java Development Kit (JDK) Maven 3.3+ require JDK 1.7 or above to execute - they still allow you to build against 1.3 and other JDK versions by Using Toolchains
Memory No minimum requirement
Disk Approximately 10MB is required for the Maven installation itself. In addition to that, additional disk space will be used for your local Maven repository. The size of your local repository will vary depending on usage but expect at least 500MB.
Operating System No minimum requirement. Start up scripts are included as shell scripts and Windows batch files.


Maven is distributed in several formats for your convenience. Simply pick a ready-made binary distribution archive and follow the installation instructions. Use a source archive if you intend to build Maven yourself.

In order to guard against corrupted downloads/installations, it is highly recommended to verify the signature of the release bundles against the public KEYS used by the Apache Maven developers.
