      Description

      In http://maven.apache.org/pom.html#Dependencies
      Using the example:

      ...There are three methods for dealing with this scenario.
      Install the dependency locally using the install plugin. The method is the simplest recommended method. For example:

      mvn install:install-file -Dfile=non-maven-proj.jar -DgroupId=some.group -DartifactId=non-maven-proj -Dversion=1

      • end in maven build error:
        "Missing group, artifact, version, or packaging information".

      To fix this problem, "-Dpackaging=jar" should be added to the command line.
      The correct example command is:

      mvn install:install-file -Dfile=non-maven-proj.jar -DgroupId=some.group -DartifactId=non-maven-proj -Dversion=1 -Dpackaging=jar
