Eclipse/Maven/Vaadin Help

Hello all,
I’m trying to test-out Vaadin and running into some issues. I work in an environment that is NOT connected to the internet. I have access to MAVEN-Repos that are scraped. (This is also first time for me using maven)

I am using Eclipse NEON, with Vaadin plugin (I think V3.0).

When I try to use the Vaadin wizard for new project (Vaadin maven) it complains part way thru that it cannot find version 7.x.x Looking at the repos I can access, I have older and new versions, but not the version it is looking for.

Is there a way to use Eclipse plugin without ANY network connections??

Is this seomthing I can specify?? Any help is greatly accepted.


Can you access command line Maven, if so you can use that to create a project, but with --offline parameter (-o)

mvn -o archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.vaadin -DarchetypeArtifactId=vaadin-archetype-application -DarchetypeVersion=7.7.6 -DgroupId=org.test -DartifactId=vaadin-app -Dversion=1.0-SNAPSHOT
