Maven Woes 2

More time spent fighting with maven. Projects which used hibernate starting failing yesterday. We use XDoclet to generate the hibernate mapping files.

Unable to find resource 'xdoclet-plugins:xdoclet-plugin-qtags:jar:1.0.4-SNAPSHOT' in repository
central (
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] Failed to resolve artifact.

1) xdoclet-plugins:xdoclet-plugin-qtags:jar:1.0.4-SNAPSHOT
Try downloading the file manually from the project website.

Then, install it using the command:
mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=xdoclet-plugins -DartifactId=xdoclet-plugin-qtags -Dversion=1.0.4-SNAPSHOT -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file

Alternatively, if you host your own repository you can deploy the file there:
mvn deploy:deploy-file -DgroupId=xdoclet-plugins -DartifactId=xdoclet-plugin-qtags -Dversion=1.0.4-SNAPSHOT -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file -Durl=[url] -DrepositoryId=[id]

For whatever reason, maven wouldn't use the SNAPSHOT version that I had locally. I couldn't find a 1.0.4 released version on t'Internet, so I just deployed the snapshot that I had in my local repository as the 1.0.4 released version. Naughty me. Had to do the same for the xdoclet-plugin-hibernate plugin as well.

UPDATE: And today it's working with the SNAPSHOT versions again. Still just doing mvn clean install, on Ubuntu, Windows Vista and within Hudson on Red Hat. Silently breaks, and then fixes itself. WTF is that all about?
