Automatic downloading of the required dependencies from the remote Maven repositories. Wizards for creating new Maven projects, pom. xml and to enable Maven support on plain Java project. Quick search for dependencies in Maven remote repositories. You cannot select a plugin/update from one update site and another plugin/update from another site at once. Is that painful or what? Share These icons link to social bookmarking sites where readers can share and discover new web pages. Then you need to do the pre-Helios chacha. Find the update site URL, copy it, go to eclipse, Install new software, add new update site, select it, then install. And you still have to reboot Eclipse to get it working. Some of the plugins you see have an install button. Cool; that would be easy! No such luck for m2eclipse. You have to press the learn more link and go to their web page. For m2eclipse here are the updates sites. Right, plural. natype. org/sites/m2e/0623-1649/ natype. org/sites/m2e-extras/ Maybe Ill have a little better luck with Groovy. Nope. Thats even worse. Doing an all marketplace search yields nothing related.
