Subject Re: help needed: problems with eclipse, m2e and wst
Date Fri, 04 May 2012 14:06:30 GMT
Having dependencies on Eclipse projects can be problematic.

1) If you think that the problems is Eclipse related, you might want to 
try Springframework's Eclipse STS. It comes with everything that you 
need to use maven
to build Java projects.

2) What Repo server are you using? It is highly recommended to use a 
repo with maven and deploy your snapshots when they are ready to be used 
in other projects.

3) Turning off Eclipse's use of other projects to resolve dependencies 
means that you are sure that your dependencies are being resolved from 
your local Maven folder on your workstation which you have been put 
there by  a maven build and install.
