Maven Repository – Go Offline with dependencies

Maven Repository

My team uses the pom.xml to generate a repository which is handed off to the secondary developers. For instance, I have a custom db2 jar

## Update your localRepository
Start a Shell
cd ~/.m2
vim settings.xml
add `<localRepository>/Users/userid/git/client-app/documentation/repo/local_repo</localRepository>`
Note: the path is relative to the location of my repo
You may have to create the folder local_repo
Save the file to where it makes most sense

## Take the Repo Offline
Change directory to the `repo` folder
`mvn dependency:go-offline`
cd local_repo
remove any previous zip
Run `zip -9 -v -r ‘base-path-for-jars-you-want/’` (Only archives into the zip the dependencies you want)
Upload the zip to the `client-app` wiki

## Remove your local repository line
Start a shell
cd ~/.m2
vim settings.xml
remove the `<localRepository>` node
Save the file
