  Maven 2.0: Compile, Test, Run, Deploy, and More

It should be noted that the Maven2 plugin for Eclipse (where Eclipse is the host) is not ready for production yet. There's a couple of shortcomings and lacking features.


However, you don't necessarily need this to work with Maven2 and Eclipse. The Eclipse plugin for Maven2 (where Maven2 is the host) generates Eclipse project files from your POM and works well.

    The plugin has some problems, but I've been using it for a couple of months now and I've had few problems. Most of the time it works as advertised. It does however require a little effort up front.

    I also face the same problem. But now come across with the new plugin offerred by Codehaus. You can check that from http://mevenide.codehaus.org/mevenide-ui-eclipse/features.html

      Actually, the mevenide plugin only works for the Maven 1.x series and not for Maven 2.x. In order to get similar functionality for Maven 2.x, you need to use the plugin created by Merenge, as mentioned at the end of the article.

      The Maven 2.x plugin for eclipse is really interesting because it includes the Maven dependencies as a library set, so if the pom file updates (and eclipse refreshes the resource), the library is automatically updated. There is no need for any copying of jar files at all.

      The situation with eclipse is not pretty right now, though. The eclipse:eclipse goal didn't initially anticipate the arrival of the eclipse plugin, so it takes some tweaking if you want to use both.
