Install a jar file into maven's local repository

Sometimes, while using maven to build your projects, it is necessary to add a needed jar file directly into your local repository. This should not be a need if you have a remote repository correctly setup, but it might be useful if it is a too bureaucratic task or any other reason.

It is as simple as this. Having the file to be installed in your local repository in the local folder, issue the command below to install it.

mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=<MVN_GROUPID> -DartifactId=<MVN_ARTIFACTID> -Dversion=<MVN_VERSION> -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=<JAR_FILE_TO_INSTALL>

Could be useful! ;)
