I am trying to download a andromda plugin for maven the installation instruction in this link webpage says use this command:
maven plugin:download -DgroupId=andromda -DartifactId=maven-andromdapp-plugin -Dversion=3.3
however when i run this command it gives me an error that 'could not find goal 'download' in plugin org.apache.maven.plugins' ...
I even looked at the plugins in AndroMDA website it seems that 'andromdapp' doesn't have 'download' goal in the list of the available goals webpage !!!
Can anyone tell me another way to download AndroMDA???

I found the Maven plugin that has the download goal:
Note that it is for Maven 1, not 2. The Plugin plugin for Maven 2 doesn't have a download download goal:

You might have to use Maven 1 with the andromda plugin. The plugins web site is hard to decipher - in places the use Maven 2 things (e.g. M2_HOME) but their command output is all from Maven 1.
