When I try running showcase sample via maven (using "mvn test" and "mvn test -Ptest-java") I get:
[INFO] Scanning for projects...
[ERROR] The project com.googlecode.playn:playn-showcase:1.0-SNAPSHOT (E:\Desarrollo\Git\playn-samples\showcase\pom.xml) has 1 error

I can create projects via Maven but when I try to create a new playn 1.3.1 project via Eclipse I get:
'Creating playn-archetype' has encountered a problem.
Unable to create project from archetype
Details: Unable to create project from archetype [com.googlecode.playn:playn-archetype:1.3.1]
The defined artifact is not an archetype
(The same happens with playn 1.4)
When I try to import a playn 1.3.1 or 1.4 project to Eclipse (created via Maven) I get the next error:
'Importing Maven projects' has encountered a problem.
An internal error ocurred during: "Importing Maven projects".
Details: An internal error occurred during: "Importing Maven projects".
So I cannot run any project via Eclipse.
I use Eclipse Indigo 3.7, maven 3.0.4 and JDK 7u5; and I follow all the steps that shows playn getting started.
I think it is related to this bug: https://github.com/rgladwell/m2e-android/issues/89
You might try the master update site (http://rgladwell.github.com/m2e-android/updates/master/), till the new version is released from m2e-android.
