Managing local jars with maven

Maven has for me a non user friendly documentation, with 80% of xml content. For long time I have been stuck in how easily manage both dependency from maven central and from local jars.

I finally got something quite general and functional. Here is how to make this working fine:

The pom.xml file:

<!-- Add the manifest -->
<!-- Make a standalone build -->
<!--  import your local jar-->
<!-- create a local respository  -->

By the way one can add dependency jars by such command line. This will populate the repos folder:

mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-install-plugin:2.3.1:install-file 

As a result, the compilation will result as a standalone jar, containing both local and central dependencies.
