Import an existing Maven-based project to eclipse

  1. Create a new Maven Project (if you already have one, just skip this step)
$ mvn archetype:generate

When asked, just keep the default configuration. It means that we’re going to use maven-archetype-quickstart archetype

  1. Convert it to Eclipse Project
$ cd ProjectName
$ mvn eclipse:eclipse
  1. Add M2_REPO to Eclipse: In Eclipse, Select Window > Preferences > Java > Build Path > Classpath Variables. Then, Click on the New… button > defined a new M2_REPO variable (if it hasn’t existed yet) and point it to your local Maven repositoryRepo
  2. Import it to Eclipse.
