I have few jar files build using Maven. Now I want my other projects to get the jar files remotely from server. In this process, I watn to build a maven repository on thumper Sunfire x450 server(Thumper).

Can any body explain me the steps involved from the start to finsih.

Also can anyone help me understand how Maven can automatically download the jar files from the server?
Do I need to install any webserver on Thumper for ex: tomcat?
