Maven Eclipse (M2e) No archetypes currently available


While trying to create a New Maven Project in Eclipse IDE, you see the below error message when you choose Catalog Nexus Indexer,

"No archetypes currently available. The archetype list will refresh when the indexes finish updating." Solution:
  1. Go to Menu: Eclipse -> Properties -> Maven -> Archetypes
  2. Click on Add Remote Catalog...
  3. Now add the following URL to Catalog File field: http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/archetype-catalog.xml
  4. Add description: archetype catalog
  5. Click on verify (may take some time), once the verification is done you may see an information displayed "Found XXXXXX archetype(s)"
  6. Click OK and Apply.
  7. Now when you create a new Maven Project, select the Catalog as archetype catalog that we just added.
