    I have installed MyEclipseIDE 6.5GA and added a pom file to my project. When it is run I receive a message about a missing surefile-junit jar, and that I should download it and install manually. Why isn’t this jar in the MyEclipse installation, and how/where can I get it? Below is the console output I receive:

      Try downloading the file manually from the project website.
      Then, install it using the command: 
          mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=org.apache.maven.surefire -DartifactId=surefire-junit -Dversion=2.4.2 -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file
      Alternatively, if you host your own repository you can deploy the file there: 
          mvn deploy:deploy-file -DgroupId=org.apache.maven.surefire -DartifactId=surefire-junit -Dversion=2.4.2 -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file -Durl=[url] -DrepositoryId=[id]

    And the pom.xml:

    This jar can be found in the default Maven repository (http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/maven/surefire/surefire-junit/2.4.2/surefire-junit-2.4.2.jar).

    You can try one of the following:
    1. Check your Maven configuration to use standard Maven repository.
    2. If you have private repository in your company or team make sure all these jars are available there.
    3. Download the jar manually and add it to repository. You can do this using MyEclipse (Main menu: MyEclipse-Utilities-Maven4MyEclipse-Import Jar to Local Repository)

    This appears to be a proxy problem. I ran the same test project on my home PC and saw that it retrieved the shrefire-junit.jar successfully. I added a proxy element to my settings.xml file and it was able to retrieve the file at work now. Below is a block similar to what I added:
