I have used the latest Netbeans IDE and found that the import via existing POM facility is very handy in importing a whole or partial project modules for maven projects. I have just got the new MyEclipse 6.5 and have not been able to find a facility like this for eclipse. Am I missing something or is this really not here?
There isn’t support for this in 6.5, but given our long-term commitment to Maven we will be bringing functionality like this shortly.
A workaround in the mean time is to create the appropriate kind of project in ME, then copy and paste the important parts of the existing POM to the POM that MyEclipse created then you are off to the races.
