Subject Re: using Maven
Date Fri, 13 Feb 2009 15:29:53 GMT
Hi Rainer,

the simplest way to get going is not installing an eclipse plugin but
running the commands as explained in one of my my previous mails.

mvn eclipse:eclipse -DdownloadSources=true
(for cleaning up first: mvn clean eclipse:clean eclipse:eclipse

after that in eclipse:
file - import - existing projects into workspace

select the folder where you checked out the maven branch and click finish
all projects hould be imported and ready for use now.

the alternative is using m2eclipse plugin or q4e plugin
I only tested the m2eclipse plugin and if you use that one you can
skip the eclipse:eclipse command and select import existing maven
project in the import menu

and don't install both eclipse maven plugins as that is looking for trouble.

I hope this helps
