...you won't believe #4.

M2E, the Maven Integration plugin for Eclipse has been part of the major Eclipse distributions for a few years now, as expected from any decent Java IDE.

In this heavily demo-focused presentation, we will show what makes m2e different compared to other IDEs, and we will demonstrate a series of little-known features which can really help increase your productivity and allow you to develop great applications with tremendous success.

This talk will feature :

  • the terrific Project conversion mechanism,
  • the dynamic resource filtering, it is really yuuge,
  • the very very strong profile management support,
  • the unbelievable on-the-fly war overlay support,
  • the amazing content assist support in the pom.xml editor
