      Description

      When the archetypes are in a password protected repository you can't download the archetype unless repository authentication information is specified in the settings.xml file, as follows:

      <server>
        <id><archetype name>-repo</id>
        <username>myuser</username>
        <password>XXXXXX</password>
        <filePermissions>664</filePermissions>
        <directoryPermissions>775</directoryPermissions>
        <configuration></configuration>
      </server>

      And the command should be invoked with the archetypeRepository option as follows:

      mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=mygroup \
      -DarchetypeArtifactId=<archetype-name> \
      -DarchetypeVersion=XXXXX -DgroupId=com.abc \
      -DartifactId=dummy \
      -Dversion=1.0.0-SNAPSHOT \
      -DarchetypeRepository=http://www.abc.com/maven2

          there should be also an option to specify the repositoryId explicitly, I wouldn't want to add a temporary entry in settings.xml every time I download a new archetype... also archetype name means archetypeArtifactId?
