Indigo is no longer officially supported for m2e, but we've created an update site that will allow the installation of m2e 1.4 into Indigo:

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

- “m2e – Maven Integration for Eclipse” plugin  (


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:


c:\projects\Tools>mvn --version

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) (

  Missing requirement: m2e logback configuration (org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration requires 'bundle org.slf4j.api 1.6.2' but it could not be found

  Cannot satisfy dependency:

    From: m2e - slf4j over logback logging (Optional) (

    To: org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration []



Sometimes in my trials and tribulations it said “editor” instead of “logback.configuration”.
