I think you still need to define a remoteRepository manually. In the past I've usually set up my own local/remote repositories, but if you want it to connect to a public server for the dependencies, you need to setup a path to the repositories.
Just to confirm, which dependencies is maven not working out for you? Downloading junit, hibernate, spring, etc jars? [ September 01, 2008: Message edited by: Scott Selikoff ]
This is a driving me crazy. So what I tried is to run Ubuntu under VMWare, in there I used mvn archetype:generate and made a project based on one of the archetypes. The archetype I used was AppFuse Spring MVC app, which creates all the poms with dependencies. I then ran "mvn install" and even that did not download any dependencies.
