Amazon EMR now supports a public EMR artifacts repository to help developers build applications based on the EMR distribution for Apache Hadoop and Apache Hive using Apache Maven for dependency management. The EMR artifacts repository hosts the same optimized versions of libraries and dependencies that are available with specific Amazon EMR release versions, ensuring that artifacts used in building applications against the EMR stack are compatible with the runtime libraries on the EMR cluster. Artifacts in the repository correspond to EMR release 5.18.0 and later. Please visit the Amazon EMR documentation for more information about the EMR artifacts repository.
