When I tried using Maven’s embedded version in Eclipse Kepler, it gave an error.
SLF4J: Failed to load class "org.slf4j.impl.StaticLoggerBinder".
A little googling showed this as a genuine issue with embedded version of Maven in Eclipse. The workaround is to download external maven and link to eclipse.
- Download Maven zip from http://maven.apache.org/download.cgi
- Unzip the file to some location say “D:\Maven”
- In Eclipse go to Windows->Preferences->Maven->Installation; Click add and provide the path in step 2 (D:\Maven)
