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.
