Did you setup your proxy settings within Eclipse/STS as well?
Same problem here on a Mac. I cannot use Roo with STS 2.6 or 2.7.
My old 2.5 with Roo 1.1.1 still works.
Thus, it is not a platform (Win, Linux, Mac) problem...
Just installed 2.8.0.M1 and problem remains. Looks like the POMs are invalid in the repository on sourceforge, for hibernate, log4j, etc. STS m2e copies the pom.xml and renames it as the jar. Plus the console output for Maven actions no longer works so troubleshooting is a bear, Maven debug option does not work either. Ugh!
I guess we'll have to manually download the jars and put them in the repository, or stop using Maven.
Can we use another repository than sourceforge to pull from, to see if it really is the poms?
I'm also seeing this problem on JDK 1.5 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 PPC with STS 2.7.1 and Roo 1.1.5 from time to time. After finally a force quit however, the problem doesn't reappear right away.
Martin, good question. I'd like to know as well. I think there are some Spring examples out there that may have been hacked. STS has been acting weird. Every time you run a Maven based example, it downloads everything again, even if its already in the local repo. What is the correct repo? It may have come from a Roo example. Where are the "project repositores" configured? Thanks.
That's worth a shot. I'll give it a try.
