How to Build Java Project using Maven in Jenkins
#1: Login to Jenkins
First thing, we will login to our Jenkins account with username and password.

Now we will configure System by adding JDK and Maven installation in Jenkins.
Navigate to Dashboard->> Manage Jenkins->> Global tool Configuration
Click on JDK->> Add JDK, Give a JDK name and provide your JAVA_HOME path where the JDK is present.
Now below click on Maven->> Add Maven, We can provide our Installed Maven path or we can also use Jenkins default one.In this case we are using Jenkins default Maven version.
Click on apply and save.

Give some description for your Project., Now In Source Code Management provide your Git Repository URL or you can use our GitHub Repository for testing.
As you can see, we got an error but no need to worry, As our repository is private so we will need to “Add credentials”.So click on add button, Now select Global as a scope, Provide your GitHub username and password, Provide your GitHub ID, Enter a description for your credentials, Now click on SAVE button.
#6: Set Branch and Build Triggers in Jenkins
Provide your particular github branch.
Select Build whenever a SNAPSHOT and GitHub hook trigger for GITScm polling as triggers.
