Why Maven?

Maven is a software build tool, but it is much more than that. Maven is also a project management tool. It is designed to be flexible, easy, and intuitive – to be a more efficient and comprehensive build tool.

Why Eclipse?

Eclipse is the most widely used IDE for Java development today. Eclipse has a huge amount of plugins and an innumerable amount of organizations developing their own software on top of it. Quite simply, Eclipse is ubiquitous. The m2eclipse project provides full integration for Maven within the Eclipse IDE.
