Do you come from maven landscape? Maven favors the insertion of modules in
its local repository which is also its cache. We don't.  The cache is only a
cache, and has such it should alaways be possible to clean it entirely
without risking to make a build fail and to add modules again to the cache.
That's why you should add jta.jar to a local repository, or better a
repository shared by your team. I suggest reading this tutorial:

It explains a little bit about local repository.

BTW, for jta.jar, an even easier way to get it is to use a maven repository
where it is available. For instance here:

To do so you need to tweak your settings to have both the official maven 2
repo and this one in a chain.

Take the option you prefer!
