I have written a build script using maven. the maven is running behind our company's proxy so i have entered the proxy information correctly in the settings.xml file. Its a linux machine. For some dependency like below when i try running maven i am getting Connection timeout exception hence the build is failing. below is the settings from the settings.xml
I assume that the URL you provide to the flex framework is the artifact that would not download. How are you declaring the http://fpdownload.adobe.com repository? Also there is usually additional information about the download attempts right before the stack trace, it would be helpful to see those also.
I could resolve it by temporarily uploading the artifact to the internal repository. The reason I was not able to download the artifact behind the proxy is that I was using the maven-external-dependency plugin to download from n external url and the plugin is not connection the url through the proxy setting. I guess its a bug in the plugin.
