Eclipse Indigo m2e plugin missing archetypes

Hallo

I am using Eclipse Indigo with JBoss Tools and the m2e plugin for maven.

Maven Configuration:
installation used to launch maven: External (Maven 3.0.1)
Download repository index updates on startup
Update Maven projects on startup
Archetype catalogs: Nexus Indexer, Internal, Default Local


I want to create a maven project with the new project wizard.
On the "Select an Archetype" screen I see only a few archetypes with "Catalog: All Catalogs"
When I select Nexus Indexer I find none.

I never see any output in the maven console.

When I issue "mvn archetype:generate" from the command line I get 534 archetypes.

I know that m2e needs some time to update it indexes, but after several hours nothing has happened.
Any ideas what might be wrong?

How can I add a Remote Archetype Catolog? I mean is there a public collection of URLs for catolog files?

I would specifically need archetypes for JEE5 and JEE6 projects for JBoss and Weblogic.

Thanks for any input,

Hans

I have also noticed that m2e is not that good at indexing archetypes. But, you can still fill in the archetype information manually (click the Add Archetype button and fill in the info) and make use of the archetype, even if it is not in the search list.
