Hi All,

I am trying to learn Maven Project by writing basic program.
I have added slf4j as dependency in the pom.xml. But when i give mvn install or mvn compile in the command line, it is not even trying to download the jar from repository and throws class not found exception.
Not sure what is the mistake im doing, please throw some light..

That dependency looks right. Can you run Maven in debug mode (-X -e flags) and show the output?

Note that a "class not found" error is an actual runtime error. You are getting an actual missing dependency error.

Also note that the URL property is meant to be the URL for your project. It's optional but if you are using it, it wouldn't be the Maven URL.

Hi Jeanne,

Thanks for the advise ...

As you said  the URL is optional and I dont need that now.
I have ran the compile in debug mode, please find the output below.

What do you mean by "running the compile"?

Have you tried running mvn clean install in debug mode? That's where it would show the attempted (or failed attempted) download of the dependency.

Hi Jeanne,

Now its working, I don't know for sure what mistake I did before. Downloaded Maven again and ran the same command now its working..

Thanks very much for assisting me on this ...

Glad to hear it is working now. I suspect your settings.xml got corrupted if a reinstall fixed the problem.
