Proxy Setting in Maven

If you are in a Corporate setting you might need to set the proxy for downloading dependency in Maven.

The first thing you need to do is copy the default settings.xml from generic folder to your user $HOME\.m2. Use the below command for ubuntu.

cp /etc/maven/settings.xml .

Now in the you have to search for the term “

<!-- proxies
| This is a list of proxies which can be used on this machine to connect to the network.
| Unless otherwise specified (by system property or command-line switch), the first proxy
| specification in this list marked as active will be used.
|-->
<proxies>
<!-- proxy
| Specification for one proxy, to be used in connecting to the network.
|
<proxy>
<id>optional</id>
<active>true</active>
<protocol>http</protocol>
<username>proxyuser</username>
<password>proxypass</password>
<host>proxy.host.net</host>
<port>80</port>
<nonProxyHosts>local.net|some.host.com</nonProxyHosts>
</proxy>
-->
</proxies>

Most of these will be commented, just change the above to

<!-- proxies
