Re: [m2e-users] Download sources and javadoc not working

Is this only expected to work in version 1.1?  I work in an env where I cannot connect to the internet.  I have version 1.0 of m2e installed in eclipse indigo.  I have my own repository (Archiva repository). When I publish my API jar I publish it with the javadocs, and yes I have verified that the javadocs do exist in Archiva.  In fact if I use the dependencies maven plugin I can force a pull of the javadocs, but would like m2e to automatically do this pull.

At this point I suspect this is an issue with version 1.0 of the plugin.

As an aside it has been very difficult for me to upgrade to a latest version as I do not have an internet connection.  I cannot seem to find a archived version of the plugin to download and bring over to my environment.  Do you guys have that anyone it would be very helpful as  not everyone has an outside connection to the web from their work environments.

Check if some-API-sources.jar is actually available from remote
repositories enabled in pom.xml.

Check you are running m2e 1.1, especially if you are on Juno.

If still does not work, provide small standalone example project and
expect steps to reproduce the problem and we'll have a look.

So if I am dependent on some-API.jar its in my pom and pulled from my
maven repo, then I should get some-API-sources.jar as well when I
install right?  I tried stepping into the jars classes and they are
not found and the sources jar is not in my local repository so it did
not get downloaded.

Not sure what you expected to happen, but download sources/javadoc apply
to dependencies of workspace projects. In most cases you do not need to
enable them, m2e will automatically download dependency sources when you
navigate to one of dependency classes using F3 or step into it in debugger.

So I successfully got m2e plugin installed. But I am having issues
with downloading sources and Javadocs. I went through the window->
preferences -> maven and selected both checkboxes. I then right
click my pom file and select run as maven install. My build runs and
installs just fine but none of my dependencies sources or Javadocs
are pulled down.

Any ideas?

Thanks guys Billy
