Announcing release of Maven 3.3 on CentOS Linux 7x86_64 SCL

I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of Maven in version 
3.3 on CentOS Linux 7 x86_64, delivered via a Software Collection (SCL) 
built by the SCLo Special Interest Group 

You can get started in three easy steps:
      $ sudo yum install centos-release-scl
      $ sudo yum install rh-maven33
      $ scl enable rh-maven33 bash

At this point you should be able to use maven just as a normal 
application. Here are some examples of commands you can run:
      $ mvn --version
      $ mvn compile
      $ mvn clean dependency:copy-dependencies <package>
      $ mvn test

In order to view the individual components included in this collection, 
you can run:
      $ sudo yum list rh-maven33*

About Software Collections
Software Collections give you the power to build, install, and use 
multiple versions of software on the same system, without affecting 
system-wide installed packages. Each collection is delivered as a group 
of RPMs, with the grouping being done using the name of the collection 
as a prefix of all packages that are part of the software collection.

The SCLo SIG in CentOS
The Software Collections SIG group is an open community group 
co-ordinating the development of the SCL technology, and helping curate 
a reference set of collections. In addition to the collection Maven 
being released here, we also build and deliver databases, web servers, 
and language stacks including multiple versions of PostgreSQL, MariaDB, 
Apache HTTP Server, NodeJS, Python and others.

You can find information on the SIG at ; this includes howto 
get involved and help with the effort.
