Maven - own Plugin dependency

    I'm currently learning about maven and converted my Plugins to use maven because compiling them was very difficult without it.

    But now one of my plugins has another one as a build dependency. Right now I simply added it as a dependency and because I use eclipse and the m2e plugin, it can be resolved in my workspace.
    The problem now is that this only works in my setup and doesn't really achive my goal of making compiling of my plugins easier.

    Is there any way of doing this in a way which will work for everybody?

    Are you building with Maven or Eclipse? Run mvn install and just add a dependency on the plugin without adding a repository.

    Yeah I've done that, but that doesn't really work for everyone, because then they need to have eclipse and both plugins as a project. But I want everbody to be able to simply compile it with maven

    Create a public repository?

    My problem is I cann't spend any money on my plugins and I'm pretty sure there is no free way.

    You don't have to, but I prefer managing it all myself. So I brought a really cheap VPS and set up jenkins and Archiva on one.
    Totally worth it! and if you need help setting things up, I'm more than welcome to.
