Step 3: Run Brew Doctor, Open XCode Agree to give away first born

Step 4: Setup JDK 7

Step 5: Setup JAVA_HOME to point to JDK 7 in ~/.profile

  $ emacs .profile
  export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_45.jdk/Contents/Home
The .profile file is in your home directory. You want to have this setup so that maven and other utilities will not use JDK 1.6 which ships with some version of OSX. You want the utilities like maven to use JDK 1.7.

Step 6: Install maven

$ brew install maven
