You would think that this would be terribly easy, but it isn’t. It took several attempts before I figured out what they wanted. Too bad their contextual help doesn’t give you the details.
Select the “Deploy” tab from the top, then select the “Artifacts Bundle” tab from the left. Choose the file you want, then hit deploy.
The tricky part is that they expect very specific things from the file. In my case, I was trying to import the artifact corresponding to
<dependency> <groupId>org.aspectj</groupId> <artifactId>aspectjtools</artifactId> <version>1.6.11</version> </dependency>
What they don’t tell you is that the name of the file will be part of the groupId. So I ended up with an archive named org.zip. The contents of the archive were:
In hindsight, I might have been able to name the archive org.aspectj.aspectjtools, then inside I could have multiple version directories, each containing their respective artifacts.
