I have been searching for Maven 2 plugins for IDEA
And I found some..
It seems for me that Maven is such a huge area, that we need to make more mission specific plugins.
Here I can think of the following areas
*1) Maven Build Integration
Focus for this group could be AGILITY.
(Partly builds, Exploded builds, Debugging jUnit tests etc)
*2) Maven IDEA Integration
Here maven2's own idea:idea is a starter.
The plugin "Maven Reloaded" also rocks here.
*3) Maven POM tool
I have not found a tool yet.
This area is huge it self. Constructing a POM is not that simple...
(Sample: Add artifact xxxx to pom)
*4) Maven Repository tools (query etc)
(Sample: I need class xxxxx what artifact contains it ??)
(Sample: Maintain the settings.xml file)
*5) Maven analyse tools
(Sample: Unused dependencies)
(Sample: Usage of same artifact in different version in same project complex)
