Hello everyone,

I have checked Window->Preferences->Maven->Download repository index updates on startup and restarted my Eclipse neon 3 java EE distribution. On startup updating index never terminates, the default central repository url was https://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2. I have created a new Maven Project and inserted in pom.xml the following to replace the original central repository url, but it failed too!

How can I download/update this repository index ?

Thank you.

First of all, you don't need that checkbox checked. I keep it unchecked in mine. It saves disk space because I'm using a separate directory for the local Maven repository. And also, it moves downloading to what I actually need.

That said, are you able to run an actual Maven build or is the problem just at start up?

Thank you Jeanne for your reply.

When I have created a new Maven Project, on the second screen where I must choose an archetype, there were just a few internal maven archetypes. So I have downloaded archetype-catalog.xml on my computer and configured it as a new Local Catalog. After choosing an archetype and completing the project wizard, I wanted to add some dependencies to my project, so I have choosed pom.xml->Dependencies->Add... and on the Select Dependency screen I have this warning Index downloads are disabled, search results may be incomplete. To resolve the problem, I have proceeded as described in my first post, the warning message disappeared but downloading the index never achieve.

I want to precise that adding a dependency manually in pom.xml works fine.

And if the problem is apparent in a Maven project too, can you post your complete pom.xml file?  Remember to UseCodeTags (that's a link) and change Java to XML.

And welcome to the Ranch!

Have you tried using Maven at the command line?  The command is mvn.

Since adding a dependency manually works, that means you can run Maven builds - which is good.

I don't use the "add dependency" feature for searching in Maven Central. I use Google. I do use "add dependency" for things that are already in my local repo.

Yes, I haven't problem with a standalone Maven at the command line. My problem is with the embedded Maven in Eclipse neon 3.

Why not go closer to the source, http://search.maven.org/ and http://mvnrepository.com/ ? That saves you another search.

Using then IDE Select Dependency integrated screen is more closer, so how can I use it ?

No idea, I've never used it. I always do the same as Jeanne, just lookup the dependency online and add it to the POM manually.

And I don't use it because it is slow and a memory hog

Meaning, how long did you wait?  I'm doing it right now on my setup to see how long it takes.

How powerful is your computer?  Does it have a slow disk?

I use my Toshiba Laptop i5 CPU @ 2.50Ghz 2.50Ghz, 4GB of RAM and 600GB SCSI Hitachi disk drive.
My Eclipse is neon 3 Java EE 64 bits unzipped on Windows 7, the default m2e - Maven Integration for Eclipse (includes Incubating components) version is 1.7.0.20160603-1933
Can you tell me the size of your .m2\repository directory ? And do you have inside a .cache directory ?

Also, remember your network speed (and probably latency) matters for this.

Thank you Jeanne, as you said the problem was related to performance: internet and hard drive speed.
