Maven Quick Installation in Eclipse


Maven is a build automation and software comprehension tool primarily used for Java programming. Maven serves a similar purpose to the Apache Ant tool, but it is based on different concepts and works in a profoundly different manner.

To install this plugin in the Eclipse IDE:

  1. In Eclipse, select Help > Install New Software. This should display the "Install" dialog.
  2. Paste the Update Site URL http://m2eclipse.sonatype.org/sites/m2e into the field named "Work with:" and press Enter. Pressing Enter should cause Eclipse to update list of available plugins and components.
  3. Choose the component listed under m2eclipse: "Maven Integration for Eclipse (Required)".
  4. Click Next. Eclipse will then check to see if there are any issues which would prevent a successful installation.
  5. Click Next and agree to the terms of the Eclipse Public License v1.0.
  6. Click Finish to begin the installation process. Eclipse will then download and install the necessary components.
  7. Once the installation process is finished, Eclipse will ask you if you want to restart the IDE.

After the restart, Maven may ask for configuring JRE and eclipse.ini file with VM pointing to JDK:

  1. Open eclipse.ini, add the following two lines at the beginning (don’t try to put into one line):
  2. Change JRE in Eclipse to C:\Programs\Java\jdk1.6.0_26\jre
