For using geoserver-manager with Maven, follow this: https://github.com/geosolutions-it/geoserver-manager/wiki#working-with-maven Looking at your post, you declare a dependency instead of a repository, and the log indicates that some class is not found, which may indicate geoserver-manager is not found on your classpath.

Check your pom.xml is valid, and that geoserver-manager was downloaded and is available in your project maven dependencies.

I would then suggest you first to familiarize with the geoserver-manager using a simple java program (no need for a web application here), start familiarizing with the examples provided here https://github.com/geosolutions-it/geoserver-manager/wiki/Various-Examples#some-examples It can be the one you pasted to create a workspace.
