maven error: package org.junit does not exist

I'm trying to create the javadoc with maven and it fails. It also fails when doing the verify.

mvn verify


I get the following error:

(...)
[INFO] -------------------------------------------------------------
[ERROR] COMPILATION ERROR :
[INFO] -------------------------------------------------------------
[ERROR] /home/miquel/creaveu/createOmegaMatrix/src/main/java/edu/url/salle/gtm/hnm/dataStructures/HFrame.java:[6,23]

In my pom.xml file I have the following lines:

<dependency>
<groupId>org.junit</groupId>
<artifactId>junit</artifactId>
<version>4.8.2</version>
<scope>test</scope>
</dependency>


and my local repository contains the junit jar file:

miquel@ubuntu:~/creaveu/createOmegaMatrix$ ls -l /home/miquel/.m2/repository/org/junit/junit/4.8.2/
total 248
**-rw-r--r-- 1 miquel miquel 237344 2012-09-13 11:01 junit-4.8.2.jar**

-rw-r--r-- 1 miquel miquel 163 2012-09-13 11:22 _maven.repositories
miquel@ubuntu:~/creaveu/createOmegaMatrix$


The code is fine because in my laptop, which I have no access now, I van run:

mvn javadoc:javadoc
mvn verify


with no problems, and also the tests work in eclipse IDE.

WTH I'm doing wrong?

Ok, you've declared junit dependency for test classes only (those that are in src/test/java but you're trying to use it in main classes (those that are in src/main/java).

Either do not use it in main classes, or remove <scope>test</scope>.
