That plugin is specifically for accessing maven url's for artifacts via puppet. Since the OP was very unclear on what they want to accomplish, I don't fault you for your response.

I would question if puppet is the right place to run your maven scripts. That should probably be done on a dedicated CI/CD server to crate the appropriate artifacts/packages that you will install on your system, which you then install/manage with puppet (using the above mentioned maven plugin to pull them from your maven server).

However, I have come across an example of someone doing this in the wild in the exhibitor module on thye forge -

Sadly, it was simply an exec running the maven command after pulling down the appropriate files in install.pp, it(specifically to build exhibitor, since there doesn't appear to be any kind of complete, hosted artifact/archive for it).

  exec { 'build-exhibitor':
    command => "/usr/bin/mvn clean package -f ${install_dir}/${version}/pom.xml && /bin/cp ${install_dir}/${version}/target/exhibitor-${version}.jar ${install_dir}/exhibitor-standalone-${version}.jar",
    creates => "${install_dir}/exhibitor-standalone-${version}.jar",
    require => File["${install_dir}/${version}/pom.xml"],
    unless  => "/usr/bin/test -f ${install_dir}/exhibitor-standalone-${version}.jar",
    notify  => Service['exhibitor'],
