How to configure a proxy in Maven settings?

When we work behind a proxy server we need to configure Maven to be able to connect to the internet. To enable proxy we can configure Maven settings.xml file, either in ${M2_HOME}/conf/settings.xml or ${user.home}/.m2/settings.xml file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<settings>
    .
    .
    <proxies>
        <proxy>
            <id>my-proxy</id>
            <active>true</active>
            <protocol>http</protocol>
            <host>proxy.example.org</host>
            <port>8080</port>
            <username>username</username>
            <password>password</password>
            <nonProxyHosts>*.example.org|*.example.com</nonProxyHosts>
        </proxy>
    </proxies>
    .
    .
</settings>

The <proxy> element in the configuration above contains the information about the proxy server. These include information about the host, port, username and password. Set these elements to match your proxy server configuration.
