As mentioned earlier on the Sonatype blog, we’re taking some of our most popular sessions from EclipseCon 2011, and releasing them to the wider developer community. The second installment from EclipseCon 2011 is m2eclipse: The collaboration of the Maven & Eclipse Platforms.
Software developer Igor Fedorenko details the new features and changes to m2eclipse 1.0, including pom.xml editor enhancements and reworked build lifecycle mapping.
The week is wrapping up and the Sonatype team has had a chance to fully digest everything that was learned at EclipseCon 2011. From gaining valuable insight into the Tycho project to some innovative apps, everyone took home something different from the conference. It was a great week that led to many favorite moments that we thought we’d share.
EclipseCon 2011 highlights
“Meeting with Tycho developers from SAP for a face-to-face development session. It was completely ad-hoc, we just grabbed a table in the hotel lobby and worked on Tycho for few hours. Also, there was significant interest in Tycho, especially in an end-to-end solution that covers IDE, build, repository and deployment use cases.” – Igor (Software Developer)
“The p2 talks were well attended, with the hottest one being our talk with Ian Bull from EclipseSource on the do’s and don’ts of p2. It was good to talk to people using p2 to provision farms of machine in the cloud. Finally there were also some good discussions on the future of p2 in Virgo.” – Pascal (Software Developer)
“The Mobione app to make iPhone apps without programming was great for us marketing-types.” – Terry (Director, Product Marketing)
Best food goes to: “The Burrito Station at the Exhibitor Reception!” – Emily (Community Manager)
Lastly, our session Next Generation Development Infrastructure: Maven, m2eclipse, Nexus & Hudson, led by Jason van Zyl was a highlight of the week for us. Thank you to all who attended, it was great to see such an interest in the next generation of development infrastructure and we look forward to working with the community to realize this vision.
We also wanted to say thank you to the Eclipse Foundation and everyone who helps make EclipseCon possible.
Stay tuned to the Sonatype blog next week as we’ll detail some of our presentations from EclipseCon.

EclipseCon is the conference for anyone involved in Eclipse. As a proud member of the Eclipse Foundation, Sonatype is looking forward to another year of great talks, tutorials and BOF’s. We will be hosting a number of extended workshops as well as talks in the Cypress Room all day on Tuesday, March 22, 2011.
Sonatype founder Jason van Zyl will be giving a presentation on Next Generation Development Infrastructure with Maven, m2eclipse, Nexus & Hudson.
All development organizations eventually converge on a set of tools to reduce costs, lower onboarding time, and leverage knowledge in strong communities to create standard processes. To this end we see in many organizations the emergence of a standard development stack consisting of Maven, m2eclipse, Nexus & Hudson. In this talk, Jason van Zyl, Founder of the Apache Maven project, will discuss the future of Maven and specifically Maven 3.x, the rapidly approaching m2eclipse 1.0 release, the recent Nexus 1.9 release and roadmap, and emerging tools such as Maven Shell and Polyglot Maven. Sonatype itself leverages this stack on a daily basis and this discussion will focus not only on the tools individually, but how they can work together to create a best practices approach to building and delivering your software in your organization.
