Adding Repositories for Missing Dependencies in Nexus Repository 2

Nexus Repository 2

If you’ve configured your Maven settings.xml or other build tool configuration to use the public repository group as a mirror for all repositories, you might encounter projects that are unable to retrieve components from your local repository manager installation.

This usually happens because you are trying to build a project that has defined a custom set of repositories and snapshot repositories or relies on the content of other publicly available repositories in its configuration. When you encounter such a project all you have to do is add this repository to your repository manager as a new proxy repository and then add the new proxy repository to the public group.

The advantage of this approach is that no configuration change on the build tool side is necessary at all.
