Hello Developer, Hope you guys are doing great. Today at Tutorial Guruji Official website, we are sharing the answer of Maven project cannot locate dependencies in local repository without wasting too much if your time.

The question is published on by Tutorial Guruji team.

I have a maven project setup.

In my maven POM file, it is defined as below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
         xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
         xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">
    <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>

    <parent>
        <groupId>com.myProject</groupId>
        <artifactId>basePOM</artifactId>
        <version>1.0</version>
        <relativePath>../../../shared/common/pom.xml</relativePath>
    </parent>

    <groupId>com.myProject.services</groupId>
    <artifactId>orderservice</artifactId>
    <version>developer</version>
    <packaging>war</packaging>

    <build>
        <plugins>
            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>maven-resources-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>2.3</version>
                <configuration>
                    <encoding>UTF-8</encoding>
                </configuration>
            </plugin>
        </plugins>
    </build>

    <dependencies>
        <!--Internal dependencies-->
        <dependency>
            <groupId>com.myProject.shared</groupId>
            <artifactId>model</artifactId>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.jboss.resteasy</groupId>
            <artifactId>resteasy-jaxrs</artifactId>
        </dependency>

        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.jboss.resteasy</groupId>
            <artifactId>resteasy-spring</artifactId>
        </dependency>
    </dependencies>
</project>

I have a parent POM which defines some common bits:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
         xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">
    <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>

    <name>Base POM</name>
    <groupId>com.myProject</groupId>
    <artifactId>basePOM</artifactId>
    <version>1.0</version>
    <packaging>pom</packaging>

    <dependencyManagement>
        <dependencies>
            <dependency>
                <groupId>com.myProject.shared</groupId>
                <artifactId>model</artifactId>
                <version>developer</version>
            </dependency>

            <dependency>
                <groupId>org.jboss.resteasy</groupId>
                <artifactId>resteasy-jaxrs</artifactId>
                <version>1.2.GA</version>
                <exclusions>
                    <exclusion>
                        <groupId>org.slf4j</groupId>
                        <artifactId>slf4j-simple</artifactId>
                    </exclusion>
                </exclusions>
            </dependency>

            <dependency>
                <groupId>org.jboss.resteasy</groupId>
                <artifactId>resteasy-spring</artifactId>
                <version>1.2.GA</version>
            </dependency>
        </dependencies>
    </dependencyManagement>
</project>

When I run

mvn clean install

The resteasy-jaxrs and resteasy-spring are downloaded to my local repository without problem.

However, it then produces an error said:

**[ERROR] Failed to execute goal on project orderservice: Could not resolve dependencies for
 project com.mxyy.services:orderservice:war:developer: Failed to collect dependencies for
[com.mxyy.shared:model:jar:developer (compile), org.jboss.resteasy:resteasy-jaxrs:jar:1.2.

s cached in the local repository, resolution will not be reattempted until the update inte
rval of central has elapsed or updates are forced -> [Help 1]**

It looks like the project cannot pickup the dependencies already in my local repository.

Can someone let me know how I can solve this problem?

Many thanks

More Info:

I have temporarily removed the dependency com.myProject.shared. Now the error message becomes:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal on project orderservice: Could not resolve dependencies for project com.mxyy.services:orderservice:war:developer: Faile
d to collect dependencies for [org.jboss.resteasy:resteasy-jaxrs:jar:1.2.GA (compile), org.jboss.resteasy:resteasy-spring:jar:1.2.GA (compile)]: Faile

.2.pom, ReasonPhrase:Forbidden. -> [Help 1]

Answer

Well, looks like the access is forbidden.

You need to use the right path to JBoss repository: https://repository.jboss.org/nexus/content/groups/public-jboss/

Here is the artifact you need: https://repository.jboss.org/nexus/content/groups/public-jboss/org/scannotation/scannotation/

So, mention in your POM:

    <repository>
        <id>JBoss</id>
        <name>JBoss</name>
        <url>https://repository.jboss.org/nexus/content/groups/public-jboss/</url>
    </repository> 

in repositories list
