You can put that in local mavenrepository and entry in pom.xml.

That sounds like you are adding it via the Eclipse IDE's "Build Path" dialog box? Is that correct?  If so, then that is the reason for the error. You are telling Eclipse about the JAR and so you AREN'T getting any errors in Eclipse, but maven is a different thing. It doesn't look at Eclipse's build path, it just looks at what dependencies that you have set in your pom.xml file. So when you are building/installing/packaging via maven that jar isn't being included.

You need to follow @karanw's brief advice and install the jar to your local repository. If the jar is owned by you and it too is a maven project, then by doing a "maven install" on that project should get it into your local repository. Otherwise you can run the following command...
mvn install:install-file -Dfile=<path-to-jar-file> -DgroupId=<group-id> -DartifactId=<artifact-id> -Dversion=<version> -Dpackaging=jar

Open in new window

(Replacing all the <xxx> values with appropriate values for the jar file path and maven groupId, artifactId and version values that you decide on.) Then add a new <dependency> element into you pom.xml which references that above maven groupId, artifactId and version values that you have chosen.
