JDeveloper 11g and Maven

Submitted by Jochus on Thu, 03/01/2013 - 21:06 | Posted in: Java

This evening, I played a little bit with Oracle JDeveloper 11g (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/overview/index.h…). I'm using Eclipse since 2007 as IDE and I'm very happy with it, but I was wondering how JDeveloper works.

I wanted to import some existing Java projects into my JDeveloper workspace. I'm used to run the $ mvn eclipse:eclipse command to create a .project and .classpath file, but I noticed there's no $ mvn jdeveloper:jdeveloper command. However, after Googling, I found that Trinidad developed a custom plugin which does exactly the same.

To let it work, add the following tag in the pom.xml file:


Then, run the following command:

$ mvn jdev:jdev

This command will create a JDeveloper .jpr project file which you can easily import in JDeveloper.
