Subject RE: Maven hangs downloading artifacts

Sounds like firewall or virus scan problems. I used to have the same kind of problems when
updating eclipse.
A workaround might be to set up some kind of maven repository/proxy (I use Archiva) Manually
installing problem files into Archiva if needed.

Subject: Maven hangs downloading artifacts


I'm having terrible trouble with Maven hanging while downloading artifacts.

It randomly stops mid-download. Usually, cancelling with ctrl-C and re-running results in
success, and I often have to do that two or three times to get a successful build. Annoying
but acceptable. However, sometimes I get completely stuck.

If it helps, here's mvn --version:

Apache Maven 3.0.3 (r1075438; 2011-02-28 17:31:09+0000) Maven home: c:\code\apache-maven-3.0.3\bin\..
Java version: 1.7.0, vendor: Oracle Corporation Java home: c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0\jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: Cp1252 OS name: "windows 7", version: "6.1", arch:
"x86", family: "windows"

The pom.xml has no repository information, I'm just going to the main Maven repos. I am behind
a firewall, but no HTTP proxy. If I copy the URLs into my web browser, the files download

Having particular problems with these files at the moment:

Couldn't find any mention of this on the mailing list, am I the only one having this problem?
It's highly frustrating for me, as it makes an otherwise excellent build system feel like
endless trial-and-error. Any help greatly appreciated!
