I am trying to integrate my Cucumber project and Maven, while adding cucumber-junit dependency in POM, I'm getting the below error :

Failed to read artifact descriptor for info.cukes:cucumber-junit:jar:1.2.5

POM xml snapshot:

<dependency> <groupId>info.cukes</groupId> 
<artifactId>cucumber-junit</artifactId>  
<version>1.2.5</version>

It's always the issue of getting the versions of dependant libraries matching. My setup is :

 <properties>
    <project.build.sourceEncoding>UTF-8</project.build.sourceEncoding>
    <cucumber.version>1.2.4</cucumber.version>
    <selenium.version>2.53.0</selenium.version>
  </properties>

<dependencies>
        <dependency>
          <groupId>junit</groupId>
          <artifactId>junit</artifactId>
          <version>4.11</version>
          <scope>test</scope>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
          <groupId>info.cukes</groupId>
          <artifactId>cucumber-junit</artifactId>
          <version>${cucumber.version}</version>
          <scope>test</scope>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
          <groupId>info.cukes</groupId>

From https://cucumber.io/docs/reference/jvm#junit-runner: you need to specify

<dependency>
    <groupId>info.cukes</groupId>
    <artifactId>cucumber-junit</artifactId>
    <version>1.2.5</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
</dependency>

<dependency>
    <groupId>junit</groupId>
    <artifactId>junit</artifactId>
    <version>4.12</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
</dependency>
  • Tried adding Junit (4.12) dependency too, getting error as below : org.eclipse.aether.resolution.ArtifactDescriptorException: Failed to read artifact descriptor for info.cukes:cucumber-junit:jar:1.2.5 org.eclipse.aether.resolution.ArtifactDescriptorException: Failed to read artifact descriptor for junit:junit:jar:4.12 – JustARandomGuy Dec 6 '16 at 7:31
  • Ok, can you add full pom and describe how you download dependencies? Is maven configured in eclipse to point to correct repo? – olyv Dec 6 '16 at 7:33

I have added maven compiler plugin as below and its solved my problem.

           <plugin>
            <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
            <artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>
            <version>3.2</version>
            <configuration>
                <source>1.7</source>
                <target>1.7</target>
            </configuration>
        </plugin>
