I recently switched from IntelliJ to Eclipse. I'm still an IntelliJ fan however. One of the things I like about Eclipse is it's support for Maven (which I'm also a big fan of). Does IntelliJ provide Maven support and if so, how well does it stack up against the support provided by Eclipse.

Hello Paul,

Maven integration is one of the new features of IntelliJ IDEA 7.0. We support storing the module classpath/dependency information in pom.xml files, and running Maven goals from within the IDE.

Unfortunately I haven't looked at the Eclipse Maven support in much detail myself. As far as I can see, the M2Eclipse plugin provides roughly the same features as IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.

I appreciate your response.

I have always preferred having an agnostic build tool like Ant or Maven as the basis for our build environment and then developers can choose whichever IDE best suits their particular needs. Personally, I was very fond of IntelliJ (having switched over from JBuilder).

After having used Maven and adopted the Maven project structure, life-cycle and separations of concerns philosophy, I would have trouble going back however.

Maven integration for IntelliJ gives me a reason.
