In the previous recipe, we learned how to use SBT to create and run a Lift application. Now I will show you how to set up and run a Lift application using Maven, which is another build tool.
If you don't have Maven installed and configured on your computer, go to http://maven.apache.org/download.cgi, download Maven 3.1.0, and follow the installation instructions.
We will use a Maven archetype that will create a ready-to-use Lift application for us.
