Updating indexes maven
The good news is that there is now a free Net Beans module for Net Beans IDE 8.2, which is to be released soon, that disables this wasteful index download in favor of remote search.
Instead of having a list of all the Maven libraries on the planet on your drive, the module will just query the Maven central repository for what you need.
The first option updates the index incrementally if possible. Amount of data to download and process is much bigger.
That means it downloads only differential data, conserving network bandwidth and server resources. Caution: the Rebuild mode can be very slow for some repositories.
If you want to cancel ongoing updating operation, choose Cancel updating option.
This tooling manages the project dependencies and updates the classpath of the project dependencies in the Eclipse IDE.
It ensures that the Maven experience in Eclipse is as smooth as possible.
Eclipse was not able to search dependency in Maven central repository.
I was surprised because I have never faced this issue while I was using M2Eclipse plugin from long time.Dependency-check-maven is very simple to utilize and can be used as a stand-alone plug-in or as part of the site plug-in. It is important to understand that the first time this task is executed it may take 20 minutes or more as it downloads and processes the data from the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) hosted by NIST: https://gov After the first batch download, as long as the plug-in is executed at least once every seven days the update will only take a few seconds.
