Eclipse – Maven – Dependencies not getting automatically reflected

I have installed

  • Java 1.7
  • Eclipse Juno
  • From Eclipse Market place have installed – Maven Integration for Eclipse WTP (a.k.a m2e-wtp), m2e-apt, Spring IDE, The Spring Tool Suite™ (STS)
  • Have defined M2_HOME as directory where Maven is installed. PATH updated as %M2_HOME%/bin

I am working on Windows XP.

I am able to create a Maven project but when trying to add Dependencies (select pom.xml – Dependencies – Add) artifactId‘s “Enter groupId, artifactId or sha1 prefix or pattern” which are inputted are not getting displayed. Say if I input “springframework”, it only reflect the jars that installed locally and don’t search over the internet.
Also if I check Maven Repositories (select by Windows – Show Views – Others – Maven – Maven Repositories), nothing is shown in Global Repositories – central (

In case, if I manually put required artifactID in pom.xmland then update maven it downloads the required jars.

I am working on my home computer where I don’t have any proxies and has set following in local m2 settings (C:\Documents and Settings\Sandy\.m2\Settings.xml)

Can you please advise, what setting I need to do so that inputted artifact’s can be added using add Dependencies option?

Thanks in advance
