Eclipse JEE Indigo and Maven Plugin

As you might know, the newest version of Eclipse (Indigo) has Maven integration by default. Even though it has some problems (as discussed here) compared to non-default Maven integration in previous version of Eclipse (Helios), it’s good enough for simple projects.

What you might not know though Maven integration is limited to “Eclipse IDE for Java Developers” and not included in “Eclipse IDE for JEE Developers”. It baffles me how a new feature was left out in a more advanced version of Eclipse but regardless, this Sonatype Blog post explains the situation and provides the Indigo repository link where you can add Maven integration to your Eclipse Indigo JEE version.
