What I want to do is create a Maven project I can import into Eclipse so I can author some tests against a REST endpoint (cannot use the scenario recorder for that - FireFox REST client is not captured). In doing so I was trying to use a working Maven archetype for Gatling IO 2.0.2.
Since we use Nexus in front of the Maven world I added this to my ~/.m2/settings.xml - which is from older documentation:excilys Excilys Repository http://repository.excilys.com/content/groups/public
And I use this command:
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeCatalog=http://repository.excilys.com/content/groups/public/archetype-catalog.xml -Dfilter=io.gatling:
Per the only current (2014) docs I can find on this blog: http://theholyjava.wordpress.com/2014/04/28/how-to-create-and-run-gatling-2-0-tests/
However, I end up being told nothing matches the filter so I picked a “close match”:
http://repository.excilys.com/content/groups/public/archetype-catalog.xml → io.gatling.highcharts:gatling-highcharts-maven-archetype (-)
Which subsequently fails on me:
ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.2:generate (default-cli) on project standalone-pom: The desired archetype does not exist (io.gatling.highcharts:gatling-highcharts-maven-archetype:2.0.0-M3a) → [Help 1]
[ERROR] To see the full stack trace of the errors, re-run Maven with the -e switch.
I am a Maven beginner/novice, so please keep it simple.
