Adding Dependencies Using m2eclipse

March 10, 2010 By hloney

This video demonstrates how easy it is to add dependencies using m2eclipse.    Because m2eclipse understands how to interact with a repository index, it can quickly locate a dependency by class name or by GAV coordinate.    Don’t know which artifact contains a particular class?   Just start writing code and use an Eclipse Quick Fix to search all Maven repositories for an artifact that contains a particular class.    Want to inspect and browse a Maven repository? Don’t use a web browser.  Use the built-in dependency search feature in m2eclipse.
