Hi,

http://www.tutorialspoint.com/maven/maven_external_dependencies.htm

I followed the step given in the above tutorial to include external jars during maven build.
But the jars are not getting included in the target jar.
Please provide a suitable solution for this.

You need to use the Assembly plugin to create a JAR file that includes all of the dependencies needed to run. In your assembly descriptor, mention 'jar' as a desired output format.
