Verify install

Before proceeding to use the Alfresco SDK, you should do one final check of your system to ensure you have the prerequisites correctly installed.
Check you have the JDK and Maven correctly installed, and the correct versions of both, and that Maven is configured to use the correct version of the JDK.
Check your configuration by running the command mvn --version and listing Maven environment. This will display information similar to the following:

$ mvn --version
Apache Maven 3.3.3 (7994120775791599e205a5524ec3e0dfe41d4a06; 2015-04-22T12:57:37+01:00)
Maven home: /home/martin/apps/apache-maven-3.3.3
Java version: 1.8.0_45, vendor: Oracle Corporation
Java home: /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre
Default locale: en_GB, platform encoding: UTF-8
OS name: "linux", version: "3.13.0-58-generic", arch: "amd64", family: "unix"

$ env|egrep "M2|MAV"
MAVEN_OPTS=-Xms256m -Xmx1G -javaagent:/home/martin/libs/springloaded-1.2.5.RELEASE.jar -noverify
M2_HOME=/home/martin/apps/apache-maven-3.3.3

Make sure that the correct version of Maven is installed (3.2.5+) and that the correct version of the JDK is installed (1.8+ or IBM SDK 7.1 if on IBM WebSphere). If you have multiple JDKs installed double check that Maven is using the correct version of the JDK. If you do not see this kind of output, and your operating system cannot find the mvn command, make sure that your PATH environment variable and M2_HOME environment variable have been properly set.

You are now ready to start using the Alfresco SDK.
