What would you like to do?
Install Maven with Yum on Amazon Linux
sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/epel-apache-maven.repo
sudo sed -i s/\$releasever/6/g /etc/yum.repos.d/epel-apache-maven.repo
sudo yum install -y apache-maven
mvn --version

You can automatically install OpenJDK 8 with:

sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/epel-apache-maven.repo
# Note I've replaced the "6" with "7" here.
sudo sed -i s/\$releasever/7/g /etc/yum.repos.d/epel-apache-maven.repo
sudo yum install -y apache-maven
mvn --version

Of course, in my case, I actually prefer Oracle JDK.

I suggest you first download jdk from oracle website via wget, then install 1.8, after that set up environment variable in bash profile, as :
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.8.0_171-amd64/
export JRE_HOME=//usr/java/jdk1.8.0_171-amd64/jre
export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin:$JRE_HOME/bin

Then you do not need to deal with java version after executed in the upper gist.

This worked great but set maven (and my default java) to use Java 1.7. If you want to use Java 1.8, follow the above gist and then do:

yum search java | grep openjdk
yum install java-1.8.<revision number from yum search>-openjdk-headless.x86_64
yum install java-1.8.<revision number from yum search>-openjdk-devel.x86_64
update-alternatives --config java #pick java 1.8
update-alternatives --config javac #pick java 1.8

Thank you so much!
