Maven Project Management Without Leaving Your Java IDE
Manage projects and builds from inside your Java IDE. Standard project structures, simplified POM editing and launch commands built into MyEclipse menus keep Maven project management at your fingertips.
Ready to use integrated Maven project management?
Choose Your Maven ModeWhile MyEclipse fully supports advanced Maven development, if you only want to use the dependency management aspect, a project with full Maven support adds unnecessary project complexity. MyEclipse provides a Dependencies Only mode for taking advantage of this excellent and well-known Maven feature.
Flexible File StructureMyEclipse supports the standard file structure of Maven projects. However, if you want a flexible structure, you can choose a MyEclipse file structure and use any directory configuration you prefer.
Import Existing Maven ProjectsUse the import feature to bring existing Maven projects into MyEclipse. The Import wizard detects from the POM file technologies used in the project and automatically adds the appropriate facets to the MyEclipse project.
Easy POM EditingEdit all aspects of the POM file using a form-based editor for easy editing. Lots of editor views provide a visual of various configuration aspects. Of course, editing the source is always an option, as well. When you add facets such as Spring or JSF, MyEclipse adds the related dependencies into the POM automatically.
Built-In Command MenuUse commands from the menu for basic phases, and set up more complex launch configurations. You can also use the command line if you prefer. MyEclipse gives you the capability to use either method effectively.

Creating a Custom Launch Configuration
Other goals, such as mvn site, are not listed on the Maven Run As menu by default. You can add custom build configurations and specify other goals.
- Right-click the pom.xml file in your Maven project, and select Run As>Run Configurations.
- Right-click Maven Build, and click New.
- Enter a configuration name, and click Select to select the goals you want to run.
Note: If you click the Select button to specify goals and the goals list is empty, you need to enable the full repository index. To do so, open the Maven Repositories view, and expand Global Repositories. Right-click Central, and select Enable Full Index. It will take several minutes for the indexes to update.
