Add maven dependency? [message #22501] Wed, 04 March 2009 08:56 Go to next message

Originally posted by: sadsdfd.asds.com

I have made a maven parent project and two child maven modules. I would like
to add a dependency to the maven parent that the children should enherit.

I right click the maven parent project and choose Properties -> Java Build
Path -> Libraries.

I then press the the Add External JARs... and choose the .jar file. But the
dependency is not located under the Maven Dependencies but instead it gets
added as "Referenced Libraries".

How do I add a new Maven Dependency without doing it manually in the pom.xml
file?

You should use popup menu "Maven / Add Dependency" on your project or
pom.xml. Also, pom editor provides a structured form-based UI for
editing of all sections of the pom.xml

I have tried that but it still gets located under "Referenced Libraries" and
not under the "Maven Dependencies" section.

Just to clarify, you need to add required dependencies to
<dependencies/> section of pom.xml file of the parent project. The
easiest way to do this is by using m2e GUI as Eugene has suggested, but
you should see/make changes in plain text (or xml) editor as well. Also
note that Maven dependencies are identified using
groupId/artifactId/version "coordinates", so you should see something
like this in pom.xml file.

<dependency>
<groupId>org.apache.maven.mercury</groupId>
<artifactId>mercury-plexus</artifactId>
<version>1.0-alpha-6-SNAPSHOT</version>
</dependency>

You should not modify project java build path directly.
