I'm trying to compile my project using Maven, and I got a couple of JAR dependencies in my project. One of them is my personal lib, so I couldn't download it from any remote server. So, how do I set things up in my project.xml?

For example, my lib is X:\mylibs\foo.jar and I have to tell Maven to use it. How to do it? Meanwhile I'll STFM
