When I tried to build my project, I got the following error:

Do I have to add any special repositories?

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4 - Hints for you, SCBCD Hints - Demnachst, SCDJWS - Auch Demnachst
Did a rm -R / to find out that I lost my entire Linux installation!

The problem was with my wife. She was using my MBP for some time and deleted some files accidentally. Unfortunately my settings.xml was deleted and in the settings.xml I had all my repository definitions. I have them back now and it seems to work!
