How to download sources and javadoc artifacts with Maven Eclipse plugin from other repository?
I have spring framework dependencies in my Maven project. I want to attach the Javadoc for spring framework dependencies.
I added to pom.xml following lines
<repositories> <repository> <id>springsource-repo</id> <name>SpringSource Repository</name> <url>http://repo.springsource.org/release</url> </repository> </repositories> <build> <plugins> ... <plugin> <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId> <artifactId>maven-eclipse-plugin</artifactId> <version>2.9</version> <configuration> <downloadSources>true</downloadSources> <downloadJavadocs>true</downloadJavadocs> </configuration> </plugin> </plugins> </build>
I have installed m2eclipse and I also checked option Download Artifact Sources/Javadoc in settings.
When I run mvn eclipse:eclipse, it doesn't show any warnings. But javadoc .jar files aren't downloaded.
In Eclipse goto Windows->preferences->Maven and there you check the box with download sources and may be download javadoc as well. That should do the trick.
You can download from this location http://repo.spring.io/libs-release/org/springframework/spring/
