Raven is a plugin for Jetbrains IntelliJ IDEA Java development
environment. Now in it's first version, it allows browsing of local and
remote Maven Repository management, adding dependency Java Archives
(JARs) to the module classpath and adds some support to update
dependencies in Maven Project Descriptor 3.0 files.
Below is a brief introduction of the currently functionality. Please
note that there might be some bugs still lurking in the shadows, so be
careful and let us know your feedback.
Raven was developed on Mac OS X with Java 1.4.2 but should run on any
system that IntelliJ IDEA runs on. It was tested successfully with 4.5
and 5.0 EAP. To install it, just use the plug-in manager or
alternatively, download it from the link on the Raven plug-in home page.
It is actually not required that you have to have Maven installed,
although obviously you would benefit most if you had.
