I'm getting to the point where I've almost given up trying to use PlayN. I've tried PlayN's Getting Started guide here, as well as GamesFromScratch's updated guide here, with no luck. Every time I try and create a New->Other->"Maven Project" with the code.googlecode.playn 1.3.1 archetype, I get this error message:
'Creating playn-archetype' has encountered a problem
Unable to create project from archetype [com.googlecode.playn:playn-archetype:1.3.1] The defined artifact is not an archetype
I wonder if I'm doing anything wrong? I've read that Eclipse ships with Maven version 3.0.2 (I'm using Eclipse Juno), so I installed Maven 3.0.4, though I don't know how to upgrade Eclipse's version (or if it makes any difference).
Many Thanks for your time,
Eclipse Juno comes embedded with Maven 3.0.4, so that was not the problem.
Here is a solution I came up with:
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.googlecode.playn -DarchetypeArtifactId=playn-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=1.3.1
