1. Maven Jump-Start > 1.12. Generating an Eclipse Project

Generating an Eclipse Project

I’ll bet that you want to start working in an IDE. Maven comes with plug-ins for Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA, JBuilder, JDeveloper, and Emacs. While Maven integrates well with all of these tools, this lab focuses on its integration with Eclipse, a popular open source IDE.

How do I do that?

The process is simple; just execute the eclipse plug-in:

C:\dev\mavenbook\code\genapp\test-application> maven eclipse
  
build:start:
  
eclipse:generate-project:
    [echo] Creating C:\dev\mavenbook\code\genapp\test-application/.project ...
  
eclipse:generate-classpath:
    [echo] Creating C:\dev\mavenbook\code\genapp\test-application/.classpath ...
    [echo] Contains JUnit tests
    [echo] Setting compile of src/test to target/test-classes
Plugin 'cactus-maven' in project 'Test Application' is not available
    [echo] Setting default output directory to target/classes
  
eclipse:
    [echo] Now refresh your project in Eclipse (right click on the project and select 
"Refresh")
BUILD SUCCESSFUL
