Setting up Eclipse with Maven for Oxygen SDK

Fri Nov 21, 2014 9:58 pm

Hello All,

I am new to using eclipse with Maven and I am trying to setup an environment to program plugins for the standalone Oxygen Author 16.1. I have followed the instructions found here: http://www.oxygenxml.com/oxygen_sdk_maven.html but can't seem to add the archtype when I am creating a new Maven project. I have added my proxy to the settings file and I am connected to the internet as I can get packages from other sources.

When I fill out the "Add Archetype" form and press add I get the following error:

Can't resolve Archetype com.oxygenxml.samples:oxygen-sdk-samples-archetype:16.1.0
org.eclipse.core.runtime.CoreException: Could not resolve artifact com.oxygenxml.samples:oxygen-sdk-samples-archetype:pom:16.1.0

Similarly, when I try to call Maven from command line with the specified arguments found in the guide I get the following error:
[INFO] Scanning for projects...
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] BUILD FAILURE

It is worth mentioning that I am developing on a windows 7 machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Dirk,

First thing to check is if the repository http://www.oxygenxml.com/maven is correctly added to .m2/settings.xml. If you send us settings.xml on support@oxygenxml.com we can also take a look to see if there's any problems on how the repository is declared.

Best regards,
Alex

Hello,

Just in case anyone else bumps into a similar issue this how Dirk managed to solve the issue:
1. delete archetype-catalog.xml from user.home/.m2 (it's next to settings.xml)
2. open a console, go to a test directory and run the following command:

mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.oxygenxml.samples -DarchetypeArtifactId=oxygen-sdk-samples-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=16.1.0 -DgroupId=myGroup -DartifactId=mySample -Dversion=1.0-SNAPSHOT

The settings.xml file was correctly constructed so either archetype-catalog.xml contained some wrong data or there was an issue with the Eclipse->Maven plugin.


Best regards,
Alex
