New to the group. Hello!
Also – forgive me – little java experience and even less using Eclipse and maven. That’s about to change. I’m following company installation and configuration instructions to set up my environment with limited support from more colleagues unfortunately.
So, instructions called for installation of a specific combination that apparently worked together:
- Java 6 (jdk 1.6.0_33)
- Eclipse Indigo 3.7.0
- Maven 3.0.5
But no one saved the binaries for Maven and the plugin and it doesn’t seem they are available anymore.
I have installed Maven 3.1.0 and am attempting to install the only available version of the maven plugin, 1.4. The maven install seems to be okay:
Apache Maven 3.1.0 (893ca28a1da9d5f51ac03827af98bb730128f9f2; 2013-06-27 19:15:3
Maven home: C:\projects\Tools\apache-maven-3.1.0\bin\..
Java version: 1.6.0_33, vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc.
Java home: C:\projects\Tools\jdk1.6.0_33\jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: Cp1252
OS name: "windows 7", version: "6.1", arch: "amd64", family: "windows"
When I try to install the m2e plugin, however, I get this (most recently):
Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
Software being installed: m2e - slf4j over logback logging (Optional) 220.127.116.1130601-0317 (org.eclipse.m2e.logback.feature.feature.group 18.104.22.16830601-0317)
Missing requirement: m2e logback configuration 22.214.171.12430601-0317 (org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration 126.96.36.19930601-0317) requires 'bundle org.slf4j.api 1.6.2' but it could not be found
Cannot satisfy dependency:
From: m2e - slf4j over logback logging (Optional) 188.8.131.5230601-0317 (org.eclipse.m2e.logback.feature.feature.group 184.108.40.20630601-0317)
To: org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration [220.127.116.1130601-0317]
Sometimes in my trials and tribulations it said “editor” instead of “logback.configuration”.
Hoping one of you all can advise what I need to install where to get the plugin going.
- The maven has “slf4j-api-1.7.4.jar” and “slf4j-simple-1.7.4.jar” files in it already. Don’t know how to get the plugin to “see” those.
- I tried downloading the 1.6.2 verson of slf4j and tried copying the same two jar files from that version to the maven lib directory, but no diff.
- There’s a “pom.xml” file in the slf4j zip file/structure, but I didn’t know where to copy it in the maven directory structure. Can’t find any “pom.xml” file in maven directory structure itself.
Obviously I’m just trying things at random, which isn’t getting me anywhere. Help?
More details: (Note – I could paste the Eclipse configuration details, but seems like overkill. Let me know if not)
- Windows 7 Enterprise, SP1 8GB, 64-bit O/S
- Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers.
Version: Indigo Release
Build id: 20110615-0604
