Maven (Java EE) Integration for Eclipse WTP (a.k.a m2e-wtp) aims at providing a tight integration between Maven Integration for Eclipse (a.k.a m2e) and the Eclipse Web Tools Project (WTP) .

m2e-wtp provides a set of m2e connectors used for the configuration of Java EE projects in WTP :

  • Support for war projects : adds the Java and Dynamic Web Facets
  • Support for ejb projects : adds the Java and EJB Facets.
  • Support for ear projects : adds the EAR Facet. Supports application.xml and jboss.xml file generation, resource filtering
  • Support for rar projects : adds the Java and Connector Facets.
  • Support for app-client projects : adds the Java and Application Client Facets. Supports deployment descriptor filtering.
  • Support for web-fragment projects : adds the Java and Web Fragment Facets if a web-fragment.xml file is detected in the resource folders.
  • Support for jar dependency projects : adds the Java and Utility Facets.

m2e-wtp also brings some advanced Maven features to the Eclipse environment :

  • overlays of workspace project and .war archives dependencies
  • on-the-fly resource filtering

Finally, m2e-wtp helps you convert your legacy Eclipse projects to Maven, by translating your Java EE eclipse project settings into maven plugin configuration.

Note that m2e-wtp 1.1 requires m2e 1.5 Luna, 1.2 requires m2e 1.6 Mars.

Since 1.1 Luna optional Java EE configurators are available :

  • JAX-RS project configurator : installs the JAX-RS Facet to war projects having JAX-RS dependencies
  • JSF project configurator : installs the JSF Facet to war projects having a WEB-INF/faces-config.xml, JSF dependencies or defining a FacesServlet in web.xml
  • JPA project configurator : installs the JPA Facet to java projects having a META-INF/persistence.xml descriptor

This optional configurators can be turned on/off in the Workspace preferences under Maven > Java EE integration
