Eclipse maven updating indexes
My first hunch was that Eclipse might not able to connect to Internet, and to verify that I tried connecting Eclipse market place, and boom it was working fine.Then I quickly checked Maven settings in Eclipse and found that the option which is required to download and build the index was not turned on. To give you some background about how Eclipse search dependency on Maven remote repository, be it default Maven central or internal Nexus repository.
After some trial and error, I realized that this is my brand new workspace and I am running with Eclipse Luna, newest version of Eclipse which I had just downloaded couple days of back.
If you double click there it will open the view which we have shown in next screenshot, there you can see that it downloads dependencies form Maven central remote repository.
You can see that Eclipse is updating indexes and it's doing it from Maven central repository,
You can skip this step if it fails and you just want to get the project into eclipse.
Recently I face an strange issue while using Maven in Eclipse via M2Eclipse plugin.
