Yeah its really troublesome if u wanna add jars that are not supported maven in netbeans, the default dependencies in netbeans is to search in maven repo.

so if we want to add jar that not supported maven, we must install the jar to our maven local repo.

there is 2 way to add your jar to maven project in netbeans, first add it manually using maven command in console/cmd or the easier way, right click in your missing jar 🙂

Right click  in your missing jar in project explorer and browse your missing jar


netbeans - maven right click


netbeans- maven browse


Using maven command in your console/cmd

first we just using maven that already in netbeans installation package, the maven netbeans library is located in :

E:\Program Files\NetBeans 7.3\java\maven\bin

you can simply open command console in the maven path, or you can set up configure the maven in system variable, just add in the PATH variable in the system environment
note: split it between the path application using semicolon (;)

make sure that u have set up your java environment variable
JAVA_HOME add in system variable

JAVA_HOME = E:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_21\

open cmd, and install the jar file using maven,

mvn install:install-file -Dfile=F:\xx\xx\xx\jcprov-1.0.jar -DgroupId=safenet.jcprov -DartifactId=jcprov -Dversion=1.0 -Dpackaging=jar

note : notice that “-DgroupId”, “-DartifactId” and “-Dversion” value must exact the same as in pom.xml

command result :

C:\Users\xxx>mvn install:install-file -Dfile=F:\xx\xx\
xx\jcprov-1.0.jar -DgroupId=safenet.jcprov -DartifactId=jcprov -Dversion=1.0 -D
