Bundled Maven Integration plugin

A plugin is based on popular plugins for Demetra (,
New features:

  • Maven project import (similar to import from Eclipse or JBuilder)
  • On-the-fly import. Instead of one-time import you can ask IDEA to import one or several pom.xml files on every project opening. In this case IDEA will create temporary modules which are not persisted to .iml files and not mentioned in .ipr. This allows you to share/version .ipr which only mentions pom.xml files.
  • "Maven projects" and "Maven build output" toolwindow:

Current limitations:

  • No support for war/ejb/ear packaging
  • No support for generated sources directories (currently modello plugin output paths hardcoded)
  • Changes in module settings are not reflected in corresponding pom.xml (maven-synchronized modules will have special property page for dependency management)
  • No filtering for pom.xml files listed in Maven Projects toolwindow

Further plans (besides overcoming listed limitations)

  • Favorite goals for projects
  • Maven repository browser
  • Dependency viewer
  • Excluded dependencies

Spring AOP

  • Gutter icons for navigation between advices and advised methods

    The ideas you have for maven support are super cool, but don't forget us ivy users! At least make the maven specific part pluggable over a generic underlying infrastructure so that ivy support can be built...

    Fantastic to see support for Maven as a first class citizen, this will surely be the must have feature for 7.0.

    That sounds great! Also please add support for ivy 2. Should be easy when Maven support is implemented.

    Does the Maven plugin support the Maven Ant tasks?

    Also, will/can it support the features provided by this plugin?

    One of the guys on my project wrote this to simplify our use of Maven's dependency management tasks.
