The JBoss Maven integration builds on top of Eclipse m2e and m2e-wtp to further closing the gap between the Apache Maven world and the Eclipse/WebTools world.
Easy switching between Maven profiles
If your project heavily use maven profiles you can now smoothly toggle the various profiles on and off for one or more projects simultaneously with a simple shortcut (Ctrl+Alt+P)
No need for manual setup
With configurators for CDI, Annotation Processing, Hibernate, Seam and others you only have to have these configured
in your pom.xml and Maven integration will enable the Eclipse tooling for these. Allows for
easier and more consistent eclipse project setup between developers.
Maven repository wizard
Select a preset repository
Whenever you need to add a Maven repository to your settings.xml, a wizard can help you identify local Red Hat repositories, choose from a preset list of common repositories or set up your own and configure an associated profile.
Enhanced source lookup mechanism
It just works
m2e already provides automatic download of sources for jars in your Maven project’s classpath. With the JBoss Maven integration, automatic source download is also enabled at runtime (while running a WTP server for instance) and is not limited to Maven-enabled projects.
Easily convert to Maven
Automatically identify your Maven dependencies
The Maven dependency conversion wizard plugs into the Maven conversion mechanism to let you save time identifying and converting your project jars to Maven dependencies.
