Thank you, Jack \.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse\nexus\central while Eclipse is down. regards, Eugene PS: it is enough to post questions just to the user's mailing list Jack Ziad wrote: Hello, I am not sure if this is the correct forum. Basically, eclipse can't seem to access the repository because it is unableto update the index.
In the Maven Indexes consol, there is the centralrepository but there is nothing inside of it if I click on it.
To demonstrate this feature, add a repository element to a pom.xml, by loading the Form-based POM Editor and clicking on the Repositories tab.
Click on the "Create..." button and add a new repository with the following values as shown in Figure 6.11, “Adding a Repository to a Project's POM”.
m2eclipse maintains an index for the contents of your local repository, you can use this interface to browse artifacts that have been loaded into your local repository as shown in Figure 6.14, “Browsing Your Local Maven Repository”.
Every repository that m2eclipse uses is indexed by the Nexus Indexer.
If you expand this folder, you will see artifacts that correspond to your workspace project as shown in Figure 6.10, “Browsing the m2eclipse Workspace Repository”.
The Maven Repositories view is also intelligent enough to keep track of any repositories that have been added to your project via your Maven Settings, an active Maven Profile, or that have been added directly to a project's POM.
I tried to delete the central index and readd it but it is hopeless.
Make sure you are using sun jdk, not open jdk/gcj nor other jdk on linux.
If you are not satified with the after the above steps, install jrockit instead of sun jdk, and change some of the vm options by jrocket specification, jrockit is faster than sun jdk.
I looked through previous discussion for that problem and to solve it they had to install 0.9.4 and apparently it worked. I can access the repository through an internet browser so I am sure the repository is not down.
FYI, Index update time: unknown Any help is greatly appreciated.
