System scope dependencies throwing java.lang.ClassNotFoundException
This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
I am new to maven...
I have some jars on my local machine that I declare as System scope dependencies in my POM (I understand this is not great practice but I am waiting on another build team to come up with a way to get the .jars into Artifactory). I run mvn clean install and I can see them in the Dependancy hierarchy tab (they are a more translulant shade then the rest). There are some classes in these .jars that are not throwing any errors but at runtime I get java.lang.ClassNotFoundException.
Do I need to explicitly compile them somehow via a maven command?
