Hi there,

I am trying to download war files from my maven repository. It is hosted in

$repo = { id => "myrepo", username => "admin", password => "password", url => "", }

maven { "/tmp/myfile.war": groupid => "", artifactid => "assess-maven", version => "latest", packaging => "war", repos => $repo, ensure => "latest", }

The error which I am seeing -

Error: mvn returned 1: Is Maven installed? Error: /Stage[main]/Main/Node[]/Maven[/temp/myfile.war]/ensure: change from absent to latest failed: mvn returned 1: Is Maven installed?

I am probably doing it wrong. Can anyone please take a look?

What module are you using for the 'maven' class? Does that have an expected path/configuration/installation for ensuring that it knows how to find maven if it's installed, or a way to install it for you? Without knowing more about your modules, we can't help much.

Could you please post the debug output of your agent run? It looks to be falling over about line 137 of but a debug would help see why.
