I have followed the IDE installation procedure on a Windows PC but I am unable to do a build. Eclipse tells me I have 49660 errors ! I see many errors due to unresolved external imports. For example the following import statements generate an error
- import com.google.common.collect.ImmutableSet;
- import org.apache.commons.io.IOUtils;
- import org.osgi.framework.Bundle;
I am not familiar with Java and remote repositories. I assume I am not supposed to manually download and add those dependencies to my project. I guess this is the role of Maven (?)
One of the suggestions for a fix that Eclipse makes is to search repositories for the package and when I do so , I do find the package in question.
Finally I believe I have Maven and m2e properly installed. The command mvn is recognized and I can see that m2e – Maven integration for Eclipse is installed.
