One of the users on the m2eclipse user list has some great feedback about a presentation he did at the Stockholm JUG on the best of breed Maven tooling which includes Nexus and m2eclipse. Apparently people are impressed with the Maven support inside m2eclipse which is good to here given the considerable amount of effort Sonatype has invested in m2eclipse to take it to the next level of quality. Here’s what Anders Hammar has to say:
About a month ago I did a talk about core Maven things here at our local JUG in Stockholm, Sweden. m2eclipse wasn’t the main focus of the talk, but I did use it for some examples. Mainly what was used was the pom editor and the Nexus indexes.
Even though I think the actual topics of my talk are highly interesting, most of the questions afterwards were regarding “the plugins I used in Eclipse”. Not only did some people think I hade created my own best of breed mixture, but also were a lot of people very impressed of the actual Maven support. I spoke to some people who had looked at Eclipse support some time ago (6 months – a year) but had then found it very poor. These people said that they would have a look at m2eclipse again now after my talk.
So, thanks and keep up the great job!
