What is Maven central?
Maven Central Repository is a repository provided by Maven community. It contains a large number of commonly used libraries which are mostly 3rd party software. When Maven does not find any dependency in local repository, it starts searching in central repository using following URL. Maven makes it easy to find and use libraries in your multi-module projects. Maven Central Repository assists you in locating and using components from major libraries. If an artifact is not present in the local repository, the central repository can be reached through a custom proxy configuration. You could also download dependency directly from the central repository, perhaps because an unstable release is required, or if no version of the component has been released by your project team yet.
What is Debian?
Debian is a free operating system ( OS ) for your computer. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an OS) along with thousands of software packages (also called 'packages') that are each distributed in a separate file. The packages contain the program code that does all the work, and are connected to each other in what is called a package dependency hierarchy . Each package depends on some smaller package or packages, which in turn depend on even smaller packages, and so on.
