For people wanting a quick solution to this problem:

<dependency>
  <groupId>LIB_NAME</groupId>
  <artifactId>LIB_NAME</artifactId>
  <version>1.0.0</version>
  <scope>system</scope>
  <systemPath>${basedir}/WebContent/WEB-INF/lib/YOUR_LIB.jar</systemPath>
</dependency>

just give your library a unique groupID and artifact name and point to where it is in the file system. You are good to go.

Of course this is a dirty quick fix that will ONLY work on your machine and if you don't change the path to the libs. But some times, that's all you want, to run and do a few tests.

EDIT: just re-red the question and realised the user was already using my solution as a temporary fix. I'll leave my answer as a quick help for others that come to this question. If anyone disagrees with this please leave me a comment. :)
