Solved maven-compiler-plugin - compile error in eclipse - m2

You may error like No marketplace entries found to handle maven-compiler-plugin:2.3.2:compile in Eclipse.
This error indicates that maven compiler plugins are missing so your project won’t be compiled.

Root cause of problem >
This error was caused because of missing Maven-resources-plugin-2.3.2.jar

Maven-resources-plugin-2.3.2.jar should've been there in C:\Users\ankitmittal\.m2\repository\org\apache\maven\plugins\maven-resources-plugin\2.3.2 but the folder was missing.

Step 1 >
So, I added dependency in pom.xml >

<!-- -->

Step 2 >
Now, Right click on pom.xml > select Run As > Then Maven clean  
Now, Right click on pom.xml > select Run As > Then Maven install

Refresh the project (F5 or by doing right click on project) - Required only if dependency are not updated.

Right click on project - Maven - Update Project..  (Alt + F5) - Required only if dependency are still not updated.

Step 3 (Problem is resolved this point) >
You will see that
C:\Users\ankitmittal\.m2\repository\org\apache\maven\plugins\maven-resources-plugin\2.3.2\Maven-resources-plugin-2.3.2.jar Will get downloaded and your problem will be solved.
