The Postgresql driver was not found for maven's dependency


I am running a spring project with maven and I am trying to use postgresql. I've added the dependency to pom.xml, but at tomcat startup, I get the following error:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.postgresql.Driver

pom.xml dependency:


It appears that Maven isn't downloading the jar so the Driver class is not found. Any ideas?

When I put this in my pom, the artifact gets downloaded. Maybe you should clean your maven repository cache or delete the folders manually and retry.
