Quick question about Maven and downloading of sources

Hello everyone.

I am running Intellij 8.1.3 and was curious if there was a way instead of asking maven to go ahead and download the source and javadoc for ALL dependencies for a project module...whether it would be possible to just download the javadoc/sources selectively. Like for example if I am dependent on hibernate version 3.x then just download the source for that. That would save a lot of time I think. I am not sure if that is possible or not.

Thanks for any and all replies in advance.

PS - Great to hear about the open source version of this great IDE. I actually forwarded the announcement to my work's mailing list.


Hi, Surya,

An option for dounloading sources and javadocs for a particular dependency is not yet implemented. You can only download sources and javadocs for all the dependencies of your projects. In 9.0 EAP you can download them for a separate module.
