I just noticed the following new passage in the Spring 3.0.3 documentation:
However, when I try to use Eclipse 3.4 (behind a firewall) to do a Maven...checkout Maven Projects from SCM) I get the following error message:
The samples have been improved and updated to take advantage of the new features in Spring 3.
Additionally, the samples have been moved out of the source tree into a dedicated SVN repository
As such, the samples are no longer distributed alongside Spring 3 and need to be downloaded separately
from the repository mentioned above. However, this documentation will continue to refer to some
samples (in particular Petclinic) to illustrate various features.
I have eclipse configured correctly in terms of setting the proxy. In other words, I am able via eclipse to do eclipse update and to use m2Eclipse to build other maven project hosted in a local subversion.
